Happiness is...

Being there...The added excitment? Hmm, feeling two out of three earthquakes that happened to hit at
8:30PM. Magnitude 3.9 & 4.0. Not "big" but enough to feel the jolt.
I remember feeling the "side to side" shake and asking dear hubby if he felt it. Of course he dismissed it by saying it was just the vibration from all the people running up and down the steps. I said "No Way!" It wasn't the up & down movement you feel when the people go up and down the steps, it was a side to side "shake"and It actually made me feel dizzy!
No worries, aside from frazzled nerves, all is well :0)

Happiness is

Just once here in GA I have felt an earthquake. It was within the last 6 years because we were living here. It knocked things off the closet shelves!

Glad you are ok and I wish you a happy weekend!

Glad you're ok! We have had a few earthquakes here but only one that I felt back in 1986. I was sitting on the couch home alone and it felt like someone was shaking it. I thought someone had come in...lol...until I heard the china in the cabinet clanking! It was very strange!

I think being at the ballpark during an earthquake would be scary. Glad you are ok!!

There was an earthquake in this area of the country about a year ago--around 4:30 one morning. It was enough to wake us up and wonder what was up. I thought it was a tornado however dh said right off the bat it was an earthquake. Nope, didn't like it. We're still waiting for the big one from the New Madrid fault.

Omigosh Rechelle! I would've been so scared and I know my hubby would have responded exactly the same way - so calm. I think they do that on purpose to make themselves look brave! Ha!
Thanks for the scoop on my pictures - I just knew one of my blog friends would know. I appreciate it. Have a great weekend. ~Kim

Oh my! I'm glad it wasn't more serious. I've experienced aftershocks from a quake that happened many miles away and that was close enough thanks!
