Earthquake?!?!?!?!

So sometime between 8:30 and 8:45 p.m., our house shook, as if a car had crashed into it or something. So The Hippy and I stepped outside, and all of our neighbors were out, having felt the same thing. Being near an air force base and within fairly close proximity of the airport, we were immediately concerned that perhaps a plane had crashed. But we didn't really see anything that would indicate a plane crash.

I personally was a little freaked out, because that's how everyone describes the feeling they had the morning of the Oklahoma City bombing - a feeling of an impact.

However, now the Oklahoma Geological Survey is telling us that it was an earthquake: 2.6 magnitude. While I know Oklahoma is on a fault line, earthquakes are very rare here.

I must say, it wasn't at all what I expected an earthquake to feel like. I thought that earthquakes rolled or rumbled. This lasted less than a second and felt like an impact.

So my nerdy friends and I are still holding out hope that it might have been a UFO crash!!! LOL

I live just north of TAFB and grew up just west of TAFB, so I am no stranger to that which roars, shakes and booms in the night or day.....BUT.....this was so nerve rattling, not at all what I expected an earthquake to be like. I agree with what you said, it was like an impact. We thought something had hit the side of the house, or it was a concussion from an explosion. Very freaky!
