The brochures never mentioned earthquakes
The pooch woke us up about 10 minutes before the quake, so we were awake and alert to notice it.
There are certain things I take for granted in life and just don't ever pay attention to...you know, like oxygen. Also, the ground. It's a bit freaky when the ground does something beyond simply existing.
Our house swayed a bit (kind of like rolling?) and we could hear the ground shaking. The noise definitely traveled in a uniform direction.
Everyone and everything is fine and I now have a new attitude about dirt. Didn't much appreciate the ground shaking my old house so much, though. Kinda rude.
