At Home: Earthquake!

At Home: Earthquake!

So, this afternoon, I was relaxing in bed reading. Suddenly, a little before 5 p.m., I felt the bed, the room, indeed, the entire house moving!! It lasted only a few seconds. While it was happening, I had this very strange feeling. A kind of disorientation. When Michael came into the room shortly afterwards, I mentioned it to him. He said he hadn’t felt anything. Could it be I imagined it? A few minutes later he was back.  He said there had been an earthquake along the mid-Atlantic coast, magnitude 4.1.  Originating in Delaware, it sent shockwaves through parts of New Jersey. Obviously, those parts included our area. I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me that it was an earthquake. Definitely an experience I hope not to have again.
