Tagged: Earthquake

Today I experienced my first earthquake. As I sat on my sofa…reading a book on (of all things) WordPress Photo Blogging, I started to shake back and forth….along with my sofa and the rest of the furniture in my family room. At first I had the irrational thought that my air-conditioner was getting ready to blow up! Then I thought that the air-compressor had turned on in the garage next to the family room. My third inclination was to get up and go outside. My son was sitting in his car and said….”Did you feel the earthquake? My car was shaking back and forth!” According to the news, the earthquake was centered NW of Richmond, VA and was 5.8 in magnitude. I have a whole new appreciationĀ for all the people who have suffered through a devastating earthquake!
