At 5:20 AM I was awoken by an earthquake.
Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, I’ve been in many earthquakes. I have the dubious honor of falling down on the garage stairs during the Nisqually earthquake and bruising my wrist.
This small earthquake, however, was totally different than anything I have felt before. I could feel and hear the shock-wave approach. It was something like this:
(rattle) rattle – Rattle – RATTLE – BANG – RATTLE – Rattle – rattle (rattle)
The shock-wave moved very fast. Super fast. Faster than anything I have ever experienced.
I’ve come to the conclusion, I don’t like earthquakes.
