We were sitting around the living room eating our brunch this morning when we felt a long rumble and the floor shaking. Initially we thought it was a car with their music blaring or a big truck at the nearby intersection because those things make our floors shake too.
Within 20 minutes I got a notice through my email from the local newspaper that we had indeed had an earthquake. Then I went on to check other respected resources for details.
The plans for the afternoon went out the window and we turned our attention to discussions of earthquakes and then earthquake preparedness.
