THUMBS DOWN! WHOLE LOT OF SHAKIN’. Colorado experienced its largest earthquake in 38 years just before midnight on Monday, when a magnitude 5.3 quake hit just south of Trinidad and north of the New Mexico line. Residents of northern New Mexico felt it as well — as far south as Springer, we hear.
Meanwhile, the East Coast, while bracing for a hurricane, was shaken by a magnitude 5.8 earthquake. Not since Barack Obama’s election has D.C. been so shaken up.
