The earth shakes at Oatlands

We woke this morning to our houses shaking…such a rare occurence here that people had no idea what was happening until it was over.  It was a very small earthquake, centered across the Potomac  River near Gaithersburg, MD.  We certainly felt the tremor here in Leesburg, but it was not strong enough to cause damage, only curiosity and water cooler conversation.
