Earthquake!

I felt a tremor the other day.  The ground moved.  The ground…moved!  I’m sure this is a more common occurrence to the residence of California, but to me, from the Great White North, it was a surreal experience.  Now, I didn’t come close to feeling an actual earthquake, but I was about 3 or 4 hrs. away from the epicenter and could feel the tremors of an aftershock.  It was an interesting experience and having the ground ‘wobble’ back and forth beneath your feet is unsettling to say the least.  I could only imagine how it could go from something so small to a real 7.2 earthquake like was felt by the people in Baja on Sunday, where this specific one took place.

I’m not going to pretend to begin to understand what it’s like to go through an actual earthquake, but it does put things in perspective when you hear about disasters such as this happening around the world.
