It was pretty crazy... My daughter and I were Skyping with her other Mom and watched it happen where she was in NH while feeling it here in Stoneham.

Hi Liz, That is pretty crazy. I was in Winchester visiting a friend when I felt the tremors for a couple seconds. At first I thought a big truck was passing by, but that apparently wasn't the case.

Whipple ave -- It really rattled things in the house, my printer tried to walk off the cabinet were it sits.

Hi Carolyn, Who knew printers had legs? ;) Seriously though, it sounds like the earthquake gave your place a good shake. Was anything damaged during the brief earthquake?

Gorham AVE, Stoneham. Felt like a vibration from the ground up to where I was sitting in the chair.

Thanks for the comment, Kathy. That's pretty much how it felt to me, too.

I was at my sons house in North Reading and the house rumbled at a low noise for two seconds. Felt like a jack hammer vibration.

I felt it while I was driving in my car and sitting at a red light. I felt my car wobble and I thought there was something wrong with my car!

We felt it here in Ashby, MA around 7:10pm, I texted my daughter in Pepperell MA and she too had felt it. My dogs all reacted to the ground shaking and everything in my fridge was shaking
