A Whole Lotta Shakin'

At dinner tonight I felt the table shake a bit. I pondered whether or not it was a quake. When no one else reacted and it didn't get worse, I wrote it off.

About ten minutes later we got a call from Sean. It was a quake.

About ten minutes later Rick called and said it was a 5.7 centered a few miles from our house. Home was okay, but some stuff was thrown around a bit.

About an hour later I came home and we started picking up. Lots of spices knocked over in the kitchen, bottles knocked of shelves, CDs knocked off in the living room, bunch of stuff knocked over in Rick's room, and one very freaked out little Pixel cat. He's super jumpy. So we fed him a treat and gave him water from the sink and checked the gas lines and the pipes in the basement and snuggled the kitty and gave him some Greenies and checked the foundation and the chimney for cracks and held the kitty close and gave him more water from the sink. The house threw things at him! It was very stressful! I think he'll be okay, but it's going to take a few days of the house not jumping around for him to feel comfortable again.

But we're okay here. The house is more or less intact. Just a little cleanup to do and a little prep for next time.
