I was in the office about 50 miles from the epicenter.  Pretty cool rocking and rolling for a while there.  Unfortunately, they didn't send everyone home like they did in DC.

Tyson's Corner traffic was a mess for a couple hours afterwards as everyone used the quake as an excuse to get out early.

Now that's funny!

For perspective  the earthquake in Japan on 3/11/11 was magnitude 9.0
Todays east coast earthquake was magnitude 5.8

10^9 / 10^5.8 = 1584

The Japan earthquake was one thousand five hundred and eighty four times more powerful than today's east coast earthquake.

Those of you who felt today's earthquake may begin to understand the emmensity of what happened to Japan.
Now add in an unprecedented tsunami,
and an unprecedented nuclear emergency.

Well, the epicenter was only about 7 miles from the North Anna nuc plant and Lake Anna was built to cool the plant so, if it managed to cause a tsunami on the lake, we might be close to what you're talking about :)

I was in the middle of eating a sandwich when the room started moving, ......

  What kind of sandwich was it?

ham & cheese on a roll! :D

Bavarian, Honey, or black forest? And what type of cheese? We need more details on the roll too. FWIW, aboutthat time, I was eating a strawberry fluffer-nutter, with a bottle of Kilt Lifter to wash it down.

just 3 slices of regular ole french style ham (crumpled not folded), 2 slices of yellow american cheese (folded), helmann's mayo (both top & bottom) on an italian roll (untoasted but cut hinge-style, longways), served on a white plate with a plain white napkin (folded corner-to-corner) with a big hot cup (stoneware) of coffee (fresh ground costa rican!), milk & sugar, 2 tsp.

Later in the afternoon I popped open a bottle of Founder's Centennial IPA (just to keep this sorta beer-related)

I've been know to put American on ham. Especially a hot ham and cheese. But, I do feel ya on the swiss. either way, great sounding sandwich. I really was pulling for the smoked turkey with cheddar and bacon. It was a nice dream though.

Ah, now if we're talking a BREAKFAST roll, that's entirely different. Hot ham + melty american cheese + egg? Oh yeah. Add some bacon. That's the stuff.

Since i'm from jersey i'm going to have to trump that with a Porkroll Egg & Cheese with salt, pepper & ketchup on a hard roll. Porkroll is also known as Taylor Ham for those unfamiliar.

I am unfortunately familiar with porkroll. The thinking man's spam.

Taylor Ham? Is that a brand? Anyone ever had Treet?
