Woke up with a start just after 1am today and quickly realised it was because the whole house was shaking! It probably lasted about 60 seconds… just long enough for us to get out of bed and out of the house. It was a pretty scary experience!

A quick look online showed it to be a 5.7 5.8 magnitude quake with the epicenter just a few miles inland from us.

We’re both fine and the house seems unscathed (I’ll do a full inspection in the daylight). Even though my heart rate has at last returned to normal, I think its gonna take me a while to fall back asleep tonight! 😦
