I was just sitting here on the computer and everything started shaking. How scary. It lasted for several seconds. I am still shaking.

Oh, no! Are you alright? I don't think I could deal with earthquakes...I was born and raised in Kansas - tornadoes were a common thing, but at least they are usually predicted and you have time to run to the basement or cellar. Stay safe!

I am fine. It just scared the you know what out of me. I have been through several earthquakes, but it is something that you don't get used to.
