Mom called to make sure I was okay after today's D.C. earthquake aftershocks were felt in New York City. So, here's what went down here at 50 Rockefeller Plaza.
I was "indisposed" inside a stall in the ladies' room. Suddenly, someone walked in from the hallway and yelled, "Is there anybody in here?"
"Yes!" two of us shouted back.
"We're evacuating the floor! There's been an earthquake!"
I hightailed it back to my desk to grab my purse and quickly put on my comfy shoes. We walked down six flights of stairs to the plaza level, where we all stood around for 10-15 minutes comparing notes and seeing what we could find out online. Most of my colleagues had experienced several seconds of shaking, but I had to report there were no tremors to be felt in the toilet.
Glad to see things in D.C. seem to be fine.
