About 15 minutes ago we felt an earthquake! To be honest, I kind of freaked out! I was sitting here on the computer typing and email, and Brad was out watching TV. I jumped up and was like, "Braaaaad?!?!" He just goes, "It was an earthquake." (As if I didn't know that!) Then he went upstairs to check on the kiddos. As he's doing that I have thoughts running through my head like, "We don't have enough food storage! We don't have a plan! etc. etc. etc." You know, your basic panic-type thoughts. So, I did a little search on google for Southern California earthquakes to try to find out where this earthquake occured. Here's a link for the info I found: http://www.data.scec.org/recenteqs/Quakes/ci14358316.html
The last earthquake I remember feeling was when I was staying at my grandparents' condo in San Clemente back in the summer of 1992. It was late afternoon/early evening and I was taking a nap. I remember feeling the bed moving and woke up and was totally disoriented and then realized what was happening. I kind of freaked out then too! That earthquake actually scared me...mainly because it was the first one I'd ever felt, and because I was only 14 years old.
It's funny that this happened tonight because Jakob has been asking me lately what it feels like to be in an earthquake...and he was asleep so he didn't get to feel it!! He'll be so bummed when I tell him about it tomorrow morning.
Well, I don't know if any of you (who live here in socal) felt it, but if you did, what was your reaction?
