The extent of the "damage" of today's earthquake that struck at 11:42AM just miles from our house. I watched the living room furniture rise and fall and it was very eery. Skoopi walked in circles, while Sandy laid on the floor with her ears flat on her head. I'm extremely proud of how calm I was, I moved to the doorway and just waited it out. It took a few minutes for me to realize the house had stopped shaking and it was my knees still shaking.
Several years ago pre-kids, we were awoken by some shaking at 4am. I dragged Mr. Man to the bathtub for safety, where we stood and listened to the radio for damage reports. Ten minutes later Mr. Man rubbed his bleary eyes as though he were waking up. He then said, "Uh.. why are we in the bathtub, it's not a tornado, just an earthquake" I'm not the most rational person in a crisis.
