Today I felt my first earthquake and it was really weird. I was sitting at my computer and all of a sudden I felt dizzy but then I noticed that my the clothes hanging in my room were swinging, needless to say it was crazy. Here is a timestamped conversation to prove it.
(02:33:40 PM) Riley Gelwicks: dude there is fucking earthquake right now
(02:33:46 PM) Daniel : what
(02:33:59 PM) Riley : holy shit
(02:34:06 PM) Riley : the fucking ground is shaking
(02:34:06 PM) Daniel : the ground is shaking?
(02:34:12 PM) Daniel : holy fuck
(02:34:30 PM) Riley : woah that was crazy
(02:34:34 PM) Daniel : its over?

And here is a nice link to provide provenance for my observation.

Hey Riley,

I'm currently working up north in Changchun, but this fall I will be transferring to Zhengzhou University. I was browsing on the web for information regarding ZZ and stumbled across your blog. How do you like ZZ so far? How long have you been there? Have you worked anywhere else in China? I'm hoping we can meet up when I make it down there.

Take it easy!
