Sorry, everybody. One of my idiot lackeys overloaded the tokamak in my underground lair, and the explosion collapsed the whole cavern.

The epicenter was about 2 miles from my house. I heard what sounded like a loud explosion, followed by a few minutes of shaking.

Being so close to DFW Airport, the first thing that I thought was 'Great, there goes another airplane'

Damn, three(ish) miles from my place, and I don't think anyone in the apartments thought it was a downed plane.

Wouldn't be surprised if 80% of the area that could feel it slept through it. It was a rather polite quake, I guess... like a guy that waits to fart until after you've left the room.

if i was 1/2 asleep and that close to a major airport, i would probably think the same thing. i work part time at dfw, and anytime i see smoke in the general vicinity i fear a plane has gone down

Of course, there was a second quake atop the grassy knoll, aka, Cockrell Hill.

3.4 is not very strong. having grown up in south arkansas and having lived here in dfw for a little over 4 years now, i've "experienced" countless 2.0 - 3.5 quakes. typically if you do feel those you don't realize it was a quake till after the news confirms there was a quake. i once thought i drove over a pothole...looked back to see no pothole...later that day heard there was a quake.

I was living near Modesto during the '89 quake at Loma Prieta. It was pretty weak when it got out that far. But to get a thump and realize that it was almost under your feet after not feeling a quake in over 20 years is a very different experience than a shimmy when you felt them all the damn time.

There are two South Runways. One is directly north of me, and the other is on the West Field

I'd like to politely suggest that your perception of time was a little distorted during the quake.
