Well there I was sitting on the couch Saturday morning disappointed that our soccer tournament had been cancelled due to the rains that moved in overnight. I was watching 10,000 BC opn the tele when all of a sudden the whole building started shaking. At first I thought a neighbor knocked over a dressor or something (as I live in an apartment building), but the shaking continued. I felt the whole building sway back and forth probably four times and then it stopped. The whole thing lasted maybe five seconds total.
I thought "What the heck was that?" I wondered had a car struck the building....but no there had been no crash. I live only a mile from DFW Airport and the only thing I could really think was possibly there had been a plane crash or something. Surely it was not an earthquake here in Euless. I decided to take out the trash and go outside to see if anyone else was around.
Sure enough two of my neighbors were about. My upstairs neighbor definitely felt it and was wondering what it was as well. My downstairs neighbor did not feel the shaking but heard his lights rattling and stuff.
About thirty minutes later I was back watching the movie and it did it again. My neighbor came across and knocked on my door "Did you feel that?" she asked...Yepp I sure did. In total I felt four different jolts, each one weaker and shorter.
Turns out we had an earthquake. A real live earthquake here in Euless, Texas. Reports were of a 3.3 magnitude earthquake that was centered four miles south of Euless, in North Texas. How kewl was that?!?! A north Texas earthquake.
