    YES! But only in retrospect - I'm in Piedmont North Carolina and was computing on my den chair which is a rocker-recliner - well it started to shake just a little and I thought it was me, but not so; THUS, I'm assuming that the movement was from the quake - not too impressive here! :)

    I'm in Michigan, I was in my car ~2:00 when I thought it started to run funny (kinda shakey). Like nothing I've felt before (and I'm a mechanic). It past in a few moments, and when I saw the local news...ohhh.

    I was in a building when it happened and since I am in the DC metro area we thought the worst until it went on a bit longer! After living in Cali for ages it soon dawned on me what it was! Folks started to dash out - one of the few times I have seen people run out of a building so fast! I sat in my chair once I realized it couldn't get much worse! Anyhoo, we were evacuated - building was closed up the day! My bf works downtown and he had to deal w a sea of suited zombies walking about in a bewildered state!

    When I lived in Cali, I once experienced a quake while sitting in a rocking chair. I was watching a landslide (some news report) and felt like I was sliding outta my chair - talk about interactive TV!! 

    I love my JB iPad!!

    I felt it too, but it was really strange. I was on the second floor, and it was kind of shacking slowly. Almost like the building was swinging...
