Didn't feeling in Mississippi either. Either that or it was the anchovies pizza I had the night before.

I checked the USGS web site first and found out there was an earthquake in Maine, near Lake Arrowhead, with a magnitude of 4.6 (initially reported as 4.5).  Then I called my sister in the neighboring town to see if she also felt it - she had.
