Experienced my first earthquake yesterday.

Illustration for article titled Experienced my first earthquake yesterday.

April Fools, that’s not a picture of my house, we’re all fine. But I did experience my first earthquake yesterday. I was working on my computer and leaning against the wall, when suddenly the wind picked up and the entire house started shaking like crazy. We all gathered under an archway that links the dining room to the living room, and braced ourselves, and within maybe 20 seconds, the violent shaking settled down, but the earthquake continued in a more mild form for about a minute or so. The house felt as if it were rocking like a boat. It was weird and disorienting, but kinda fun in a way?
