You Already Have a Seismometer In Your Lab

This past Tuesday, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake hit the east coast of the United States.  The last major quake to hit the Virginia area was in December 2003, which had a magnitude of 4.5.  I was living in Virginia in 2003 and remember the quake vividly.  I was running some rheometer tests during the seismic event; unfortunately, the experiment was in the middle of a thermal equilibration step, and so the data were not affected.  If anyone out there was running a test this week that was trashed by the recent quake, drop me an email at rheolworldblog -at- gmail dot com.
