Twenty years ago today, I sat in Miss Chumney's first grade classroom at Riverview Elementary in Munroe Falls Ohio. As the room was quiet, our desks began to rumble....and continued for what seemed like an eternity. It was really really strange. I'll never forget the site of our desks rumbling on the hard linoleum floor like little football figureines on the old time eletric football game. Yes, I had just experienced an earthquake. And I was living in Ohio, not California!

Today, the Akron Beacon Journal recounts this unusual moment in N.E. Ohio's history.
