You know I'd much rather deal with the occasional earthquake than shovel snow or deal with tornados and hurricanes!!
Did ye really have an earthquake? Man, that would freak me out.. I always complain that we never get fabulous sun in Ireland but i think i prefer it here when i hear about hurricanes, earthquakes etc.. happening all around the world

Here's a cool link to USGS (US Geological Survey) where it maps who felt the quake. USGS has their Western Region office in my hometown where I grew up & I remember going there with my dad and uncle to look at atlases. Ahh, memories, lol!
I remember that earthquake in NY a few years ago. It was 7 am or something and my bed moved while I was sleeping. I thought it was my mom shaking the bed, I turned around to see who/what it was and she runs into my room and tells me we just had an earthquake. I went back to sleep, it was too early to be dealing with that.
