You know, that shaking. Some might call it quaking. And what was that loud crashing noise. And why are the posters hanging on the wall of the choir room shaking? And my music stand doesn't generally wiggle like that.
That was an earthquake measuring 5.6 that struck tonight - while I was in the basement of a very large, very solidly reinforced church. It has beautiful flying buttresses (if you like that sort of thing) as a result of 1989, and today, I was assured it's a very safe place to be during an earthquake.
As a reminder, in the event of an emergency, you can call my parents for information on my whereabouts and wellbeing. My mom said she really appreciated the 11:20 pm phone call tonight. But in the event of a real emergency, maybe you should wait until morning to call my parents. They really like their sleep.
