Nope, you’re not crazy! At about five minutes past five this morning, a tremor centered in Gaithersburg rattled the D.C. area. Twitter exploded. According to The Post: “Previously, the largest earthquake reported [around D.C. since 1974] was a 2.6 magnitude tremor that occurred in 1990.”
City Paper reporters, who have nerves of steel, seem to have slept soundly through the incident. Early reports indicate that everyone is okay and wants to know if everyone else is okay too.
