Joe’s First Earthquake!

…. mine too!

Joe was sitting on my lap at the computer when suddenly we felt a rumbling, kind of like a heavy construction vehicle lumbering up the road.

But then it got louder, and more intense. Frames on the wall started to sway, and things fell off the shelf above the stove. It went on forever. I was thinking, Earthquake? No. It can’t be.

It was! The epicenter of the 5.9 magnitude quake was just a little west of here.

Joe won’t remember it, but we will! (Patrick felt it at work, and called to make sure we were OK.)

Seems like there was no serious damage, so we’re filing this in the “Neat-O Experiences” category.
