Athol-Thurman 7-10-10

Alittle shakin' goin' on-oh, yeah! The North Country earthquake that gave us a little wake up call a bit before 2 p.m. was felt and heard in our area on June 23. I thought I was imagining things when one end of the house "rumbled" but when I saw the vases on the window sill had fallen and stepping outside saw my full fuel tank leaning against the house, and a crack across the small sidewalk, I knew something was happening. I later learned that the fuel tank weighed over a ton and one end had been shifted so that one side leaned again the outside wall and vibrated. I can't end this story for you as the fuel barrel has to be pumped, and then it has to be reset (the tank). Did anyone else get shook?
