and roll out of bed! Last night around 2 am, Hubby and I sat straight up. Something shook the house. The lamp on my side of the bed was rocking around and rattling. It stopped but we were wide awake.
"What was that?"
A big gust of wind? No.
A big plane shaking the house? I don't hear one.
Did something hit the house?
"Don't turn on the light. Someone might be on the roof."
We couldn't figure it out and finally went back to sleep.
I awoke another time, hearing a rhythmic rocking sound. Hmm...
It stopped again. Back to sleep.
This morning we discovered that it was an earthquake!
I know we have a fault that runs through the state but I had never experienced one before. It was a little startling.
I would rather deal with tornados. At least with those, we know they are coming!
