All the "buzz" this morning is the 6.3 earthquake that residents in Nevada felt this morning--and the those that felt the tremor East of the epicenter. I felt it, too! I was actually just waking up. Wyatt had come in to tell me he had to go potty, so I groggily cracked open one eye long enough to tell him "Good boy--go in and go!" Then my eye slammed closed again and I tried to motivate myself to get vertical. What seems like what may have been a minute or two later I thought I could feel my bed shaking, but I was so tired I wasn't sure. In fact, I was kind of annoyed because it was such a tiny motion I thought that the kids were trying to be funny by wiggling my mattress. When I opened my eyes and saw that I was alone in my bedroom, my next thought was that I must be dizzy. I closed my eyes tight trying to make the "dizziness" go away and after a few seconds it did. "Weird", I thought. Then I rolled over and grabbed the remote for the stereo and immediately after turning it on, reports of the earthquake tremors sounded across the airwaves. 2-and-2 came together and I realized what it was I had experienced exactly. WOW!
From what I understand they are still assessing the damage in Wells. Of course what I felt was nearly nothing. I can't imagine what it would be like to be in the epicenter. Prayers go out to them and hopefully there were not serious injuries or fatalities.
Have you ever experienced a major shakedown? Tell me about it!
