It was weird.
It was 5.8 on the Reichter scale -- the biggest one ever on the East Coast. We were all sent home afterwards. At first we were told not to come back to work until further notice because there may have been structural damages to the building. Anyway about seven we got words the building was okay and we should report to work as usual.
Well this is on the wall of the stairwell right next to my office:
People on the West Coast might think we are wimps, but it is pretty scary!
The engineers say the building is structurally sound. I hope they are right!
