We Just Had an EarthquakeI was abruptly woken up just now by an earthquake. And I'm not even making that up. I was downstairs sleeping on the couch, and I came to with the sound of the house rattling. It felt like someone put the house on a train and we were flying down the tracks. You could hear the house creaking as it shook, and it was totally out of control. At first I thought it was a tornado or something, but it was too quiet to be that.
It subsided in a matter of seconds (not sure how far into it I woke up), and I stepped out front to see what was going on. It was very calm outside.
Then I came back in and heard Courtney upstairs, so I ran up to the bedroom. She was scared out of her mind, but also knew it was an earthquake.
So now we're both in the big bed shaking a little bit. That was awesome. Scary, but awesome. You should have heard that thing.
Ok, I'll go turn on the news and wait for Ben Handleman to tell me to calm down.
