Yowza! (temblor)

· Music

I just bolted off the couch when a very sudden sharp earthquake (rather vertical in its motion) flashed through our house. It was followed by some rapid juddering that shook the chandelier. Apparenlty it was about a 5.0 (felt like more) and centered near Piedmont (no wonder, that’s just a mile or so from here). Talk about panic. I was up in a flash and my heart is still racing.
