Earthquake in NYC

6

August 23, 2011 by Darlene McC

I’m sure the world heard by now (or you noticed because most of you are on the Eastern sea board) but an earthquake hit and rumbled NYC today.  A bit of urban adventure!

Take part: if you felt it you should report it (other than on facebook and twitter).  I’ve heard conflicting reports on if it was centered in VA or Ottawa; but there was also a major quake in Colorado last night.  Precursors to a big one on the North American continent?

Update at 2:10: Looks like the USGS is saying it was Virginia, not Canada.  They’re also showing a small one upstate yesterday, that large on in Colorado, and a few small ones in the middle of the country.  Earthquake survival tips, just in case this is a warning shot 😉

Update at 2:20: Woah, didn’t expect so many hits.  Tell us where you were.  What were you doing and what did you feel?  Were you scared?  Was it weird?

My cats kinda freaked and I watched the curtains move.

Update at 2:30: Parts of the Pentagon, White House, and Capital were evacuated?  Really?

      What’d you see Joel? Just the feeling was scary? This is my 2nd earthquake (both in New York state) so it wasn’t quite as shocking for me.

        it’s not what i saw…. it’s what i felt. first i felt my chair shake, then my body, then i touched my desk and it was shaking. i went into my living room and i felt the floor shaking. i ran out of my apartment and into the street, where the sidewalk was trembling. then it stopped.

  2. […] is-a-coming and she’s going to clip New York City on the way by.  Yup, we’re getting an earthquake and a hurricane in the same week!  I know, I know… NYC gets everything all the time.  Just […]

#thatmomentwhen your guided meditation series gets featured by @team_eqx 😄 🙏 . . For many years I held myself back with the belief that meditation was too "out there" for fitness and no one would get it. I'm so blessed to work on a company and with a team that's so excited for me to share my practice with them. . . #blessed #meditation #trainerlife #equinox #alignmentyoga #wellbeing #levelup . . . #Repost @team_eqx and @jordon.tatishi - - - - - - Mid- Month Meditation Check In w/ @darlene.coach . Thank you for this guided opportunity to reflect & focus on what sensations my body has been experiencing the last 2 weeks. Releasing tensions and centering my body.
#tbt to our last sunset in Thailand. I miss that magic island and all my loves from TTC. A far cry from a rainy day in Midtown Manhattan. . . Suns set, seasons change. This has been a year of transformations so far, and there's still more to come. . . Don't be afraid of change. It's our only constant. It's one of our few lifelong companions, alone with your heartbeat and your breath. You can fight it or you can embrace it ~ one leaks energy and one invites you to leave behind what isn't working. . . How have you reached towards change this year? . . . #kohphagan #progressnotperfection #changeisgood #growthmindset #anothergrowthopportunity #washyourface #thailandyoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #lunaalignmentyogattc #ttc #yogawarrior #yogateacher

Wise words from my teacher: ・・・ For years I saw yoga as the goal, sacrificing myself on its alter. I now see yoga as magnificent tool, or actually a box of tools, aimed to help us live life in its full potential: health on all levels and acceptance on all levels, so we can experience the freedom and joy within us. ❤️ -Tal . . . #Repost @luna_alignment_yoga . . . . . . . . . . #alignmentyogattc #lunaalignmentyoga #alignment #alignmentyoga #yogateacher #yoga #yogateachertraining #yogateacherlife #yogateachertrainingthailand #yogateachertrainingcourse #innerstate #yogastudents #ytt200 #wellbeing #thailandyoga #yogathailand #kohphanganyoga #yogakohphangan #pranayamagarden #instayoga #yogateachertrainings #yogateachertrainingkohphangan
Back from a weekend in the woods by myself, feeling a sense of freedom and accomplishment. . . It's so easy in our lives to focus on the daily challenges. The lists of tasks, the unanswered texts, the emails and "shoulds". Knowing I had 30 hours that was more about the journey than the destination gave me the freedom to explore. To enjoy. To play. To just BE. . . What gives you a sense of freedom? Have you set aside some time this weekend/coming week to just BE? How will you use it? . . #gooutside #befree #outdoors #donttellmewhaticantdo #heds #hiking #camping #womenwhocamp #wildwoman #wildchild #free #bornfree #liveinthewild #livefree
Don't let Monday twist you up. . . So much about our daily lives is a matter of perspective. "Monday" does not have to be a negative! A new week is a new opportunity to be better, stronger, more resilient, and to have a greater impact on your world. . . Choose your path, don't let your let your reactiveness choose it for you. . . #getsome #alignmentyoga #yogawisdom #monday #seatedtwist #positivity #motivatedmonday
