I woke up almost an hour before my alarm went off this morning. My bed was vibrating. No, it was more than that. My bed was a-rockin'! In my fuzzy-headed state, I had no idea what was going on. Why was I moving? Had I overslept? Was someone trying to get me out of bed? What was all that ruckus?
By the time I realized it was an earthquake, it was over. I guess it was really just a tremor. Nothing was knocked over. There was no damage. It was just a very, very odd sensation, especially first thing in the morning.
I'd heard that they're common around here, that we're near a fault line. In fact, Marta said she woke up to one herself last month, but I somehow slept through it. This morning's was the first I'd experienced. I'm sure there will be more during my time here. I just hope they don't get much worse.
