At 5:04 this morning I was awakened by a rumble and slight shaking. I immediately grabbed my husbands arm thinking he had fallen. As I became awake I realized he was still beside me and the rumbling was continuing. My next thought was train, but we don't live near trains. Then I thought thunderstorm and decided it was ok to return to sleep. By this time Brett was up investigating and he also came to the conclusion that it was thunder. But, WTOP informed us later this morning that we had an earthquake that shook furniture in Maryland (the epicenter) and was felt all the way out to West Virginia.
