We had an Earthquake!

Crazy, eh?

I was at work and it was interesting to watch everyone realize what was happening at the same time. I couldn't feel the earth tremble, I just felt the building sway from side to side. It's two hours later and I still have a funny feeling in my stomach.

Some people went home from work citing being too shaken up to continue, but I think it's just because it was so unnerving. It wasn't bad enough for anything to fall off my desk, for example.

So I don't think we were in any real danger, but it was definitely spooky!


  1. Really disconcerting feeling, huh? I felt an earthquake back in the 80's when we lived in Greenwood and it was weird to feel the solid ground shake. So glad you're ok

  2. I totally get this. When we went to NZ the last time, I woke up the second night we were there at 3:00 am and the light above the bed was swinging and everything was shaking side to side. So weird! Glad this wasn't a bad one but I remember feeling the building sway, we were on the third floor. Buildings in NZ are built to sway on purpose they have so many earthquakes. I layed there and couldn't remember whether to get in a doorway, a bathtub or just pull the covers up over my head. I found out from the locals the next day that we are supposed to lay on the floor beside the bed.
