One year ago right NOW (ish) a magnitude 5.8 earthquake hit near Mineral, Virginia.
Discovery Communications was closed following the earthquake.
This Discovery News employee absconded to a safe place for an afternoon margarita.

Washington Monument post earthquake. They had to clear the area of tourists!
-Washington Monument, DC. Photo taken by: me

Sadly, the Washington Monument is still closed for repairs a year later.  According to USAToday the monument may reopen in 2014.

So it’s that day this happened again:


And the top of the National Cathedral fell off…. smashing cars.
And people in Virginia found lovely things like “hey, one outer wall of the house….is no longer touching…the house” or “hang on, what’s the foundation doing over there?” or “where’d my chimney go?”
