Reassuring... "A 6.3 magnitude earthquake has struck in south-west Iran, not far from the country's only nuclear power station, the US Geological Survey reports."

Company building in Tecom evacuated, but didn't feel a thing in Umm Sequim.

I'm not used to the earth moving anyway. I'm married.

I'm newly married and the earth certainly didn't move here. That said I am used to the planes leaving DIA every 5 minutes which do sometimes make things move.
