Close, but no cigar.

it wasnt really an earthquake. It was our founding fathers rolling over in their graves!

Better call Obama to send in FEMA. A 4.3 is of the hook

Many of my acquaintances are eastern or southern KY.... most said they felt it, but that's about it. I'm sure a few trailers might have slid a few inches on their blocks though....

More and more i'm convinced Matt Bracken was sent from the future.

I felt it in the Chattanooga area. I was working in my shed and had just sat on my riding mower to answer a couple texts. My first thought was that someone had jumped on the back of the mower and was holding on to the roll bar rocking it back and forth. Kept going for 5 or 10 seconds.

Freaked me out because I couldn't imagine how someone could have gotten in there . Realized pretty quick what it was.

Yeah, but we won't live to see it.

Some of you guys need to be taking Xanax. If it happens, it happens. No sense in bringing up your blood pressure over something you have no control over.

Felt it just outside Knoxville . Was laying in bed and thought my 17 month old nephew had come in the room and was shaking my bed trying to get me up.

You can bet if there is any damage he will helicopter in for the photo op, and then promptly forget about the area.

If it's the New Madrid, that's good. Better a thousand little 4.3 quakes than one big 10.0. A lot of homes, infrastructures and people will be at risk if the big one hits. Just like the San Andreas in California.

IIRC New Madrid fires off as massive one about every 100-120 tears. IIRC it is also overdue. I wouldn't want to be in St. Louis or anywhere on the Mississippi river coastline when it does.

Doubt it. KY didn't go to him on Tuesday. If he didn't [thankfully] come to Nashville to survey the damage from the 2010 Flood, he won't take time from improving his golf game to fly into Eastern KY.

It's not about KY in particular, it is about the bigger picture of our leader appearing munificent and compassionate. This term in office is all about making him acceptable to history he's already succeeded in fucking the country.

I was in mammoth caves a couple of years ago and somehow I got the thought of a trembler in my head. Last 4 hours or so really screwed with my head.

That being said don't pass up the opportunity to see them if you can. Truly amazing.

And as an added bonus, trust me, do not ask the guide what role the the cave system played in the "war of northern aggression".

Dammit, I came here to post that. "We WILL rebuild!".
