It not a super violent shake, and it's one "instance" (not multiple shakes, just one). But I'm worried something wasn't tightened, or something is cracked. I never have a problem starting her, this is just something I noticed after a timing belt job.
Thanks all, drive safe in this weather!

Something is definitely loose.
Who did the timing belt? You should take your vehicle back to that garage.
