Any one else in the river north area feel their building shaking for a minute or less Sat night?

Had several different units in river north high rise by the river report several short lived episodes of their whole unit shaking (similar to a mild earth quake) overnight this past Saturday into Sunday Jan 24/25, 2015. Not sure what to make of it but wondering if anyone else experienced this or has an explanation for the phenomenon?

  • Randi Doeker Environmental activist

    Perhaps it was a series of heavy trucks rolling by. Here's the best source of earthquake info and there is nothing for this area:

    Thank you Randi Doeker! Yea i did check for earthquakes and i concur that nothing there to explain what they felt. Different people described what they felt and saw which seems inconsistent with just trains or heavy trucks. One person said it was enough shaking to actually cause their sliding drawers to open up and others described room and doors shaking\rattling for longer than 10 seconds and these people were anywhere from 16 - 20 stories up. ' This also occured overnight and was reported by several unrelated parties. I was not in the building at the time but would sure like to know what caused this. Thank you again for your input!

Custom cushion for window seat - vendor recommendations?

Hi, neighbors,

I am looking for a business that makes custom window seat cushions. Would also possibly have them make new covers for my outdoor cushions in the spring. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks!

Looking for someone to install large window decals

Looking for a person or company that can be recommended? The guys we originally hired have not finished the job (almost 2 years later), and we're fed up and need to look elsewhere. The decals are already printed and paid for, and 3/4 of them have been placed on the windows on the side of our building. There's only 4 small windows left, but they are the highest ones. We just need someone who can install them probably, probably using some sort of scaffolding.
