EARTHQUAKE! Where were you when it happened?
So I recently experienced my very first EARTHQUAKE. It was a magnitude 5.0 and lasted about 20 seconds.
I was actually sitting on the couch just blogging on my laptop. It was quiet, I didn't have music, tv or anything else on.
The first thing I noticed was the closed door behind me creaking. I thought maybe my cat was shut into the room and she might of be trying to get out. But it was to loud and strong for her to be doing that.
Then I realized the couch I was sitting on was moving!!! It felt like someone was behind it and pushing it forward. A little bit back and forth.
I heard the a low rumble and was looking out the window to see if it was a tornado or even a big truck to explain all that was happening. Nothing!
It seemed longer than just 20 seconds.
When it was through I opened the creaking door...no one in there...I walked outside...nothing...I walked to the kitchen, my cat was sleeping in there.
That is when I started to get really mad. Yes mad. Cause I was totally convinced it was a ghost. Yes a ghost. I was mad because we have been living in this house for almost 2 years and have never had any ghostly encounters before. And I was confused why it was trying to get me off the couch. I was thinking I am not doing anything wrong??? And at the same time I was thinking no one is going to believe my story. Nobody! I sat on the couch and tried to make it move...it wouldn't budge. Then the phone rang.
When I answered I could over hear my hubby talking to his boss...He felt it too! Yes, it was an EARTHQUAKE, not a silly ghost who wanted me off the couch.
Boy did I feel silly!
