Shake Your Valley...uh huh
During the last 20 years I can bet on a quake after a very late night of working. This morning was no exception.
A 5.6 earthquake hit this morning. I had finished working and gone to bed at about 5:15 AM. :p Talk about a jolt! It sounded like a locamotive was making it's way through the neighborhood and felt like super excellerated turbulence.I must've been flying when I grabbed my son out of his room and to the safe spot in the dining room (super sturdy table and four steel chairs, thank God for Williams-Sonoma!) I don't recall going through the hallway. We stayed there until the shaking stopped.I'm not a big earthquake fan so I had to do my best to be as calm as possible around my son (he's 2 ½) ...at some point I recall telling him, "this is our fortress of solitude" he smiled.
We checked the gas lines and the size of the quake then went back to bed.
I spent the last 20 minutes picking up fallen items and pushing things back in place and cleaning up broken items. hehehe, kinda looked like the place had been ransacked.
