I guess this is what I get for sleeping late these days. It was after 9am when I was shaken awake. No biggie really. Only a 2.7 -- But still, an earthquake is an earthquake. Not to sound all panicky but I've heard (from too many different sources) that we're due for a big one, like soon!
When I woke up this morning I had enough time to process what was happening. That tells me the quake lasted longer than most little shocks we tend to get. The shaking and rocking kept building, strong enough for me to sit up and consider making my way to the doorframe.
My first thought (after, now that's an earthquake!) was if we do get hit while I'm home, my car would be buried below three stories of apartments. My second thought was, now, where is that earthquake kit I started assembling six months ago? And yet another thought - I'm not prepared.
I was more prepared while on vacation than I am at home. Thinking about it, everything is packed and grouped together on vacation. Here, I have things scattered about. Add this to my list of projects : Earthquake Preparedness!
