This morning, there was an earthquake here in Washington, DC. Crazy! There was a loud rumble that reached some sort of crescendo and shook things up a bit. I guess that’s what 3.7 feels like.
Of course, it was nothing compared to the earthquakes many of y’all have experienced; but for DC locals, it was “breaking news.”
I thought it was funny to learn how each member of our family reacted. Keep in mind that it was 5:04 a.m.
Me – I immediately thought: “earthquake.” But then I didn’t think we could get those around here.
Mike- Was sure his worst fears had come true, and that one of the huge trees in our yard had finally fallen on the house.
Caly- Woke up screaming bloody murder and wondering why the house was “wiggling.”
Mom – “DC has been bombed!”
Dad – Like father, like daughter, he thought earthquake.
Chad – Zzzzzzz…
Kristin – Zzzzzzz…
Brian – “Wow, that was some loud thunder.”
Steve – told Nicole it was the train near their house. Tough day for him, as he prides himself on knowing about things like earthquakes. Maybe next time, Stevie!
Nicole – Didn’t remember the train ever shaking the house like that before. She thinks every loud rumble is a bomb or an earthquake. For once, she was right.
Did I mention that Chad and Kristin slept right through it?
All right, to be fair, Kristin had a very late meeting last night. And Chad, well, Chad is a teenage boy.
Ok, we’re off to Tennesse this weekend, but check back Monday to see what we have planned for the next two weeks.
