Early this morning the San Andreas Fault woke me up with quite a rattle.
The bed was shaking and I could hear the room creaking.
Having grown up in Mexico City, I am quite familiar with earthquakes (most notably I experienced this one when I was just a girl). So, it was funny for my sleepy self to think that all that shaking was caused by an epic raccoon fight on the roof.
The quake was over very quickly, giving me no time to get up or react.
I was back asleep in no time at all.
The way I see it, it is best to have periodic smallish quakes often rather than not to have them in a while, as the energy of the earth's plaques is released with fury when that happens.
This one, however, is the strongest I have felt in quite some time (4.0). After all I was, quite literally, sleeping right on top of the fault!
Have you ever been in an earthquake?
What was your first thought about what was going on?
I would love to hear your stories,
