So I have this cough. It started up over the weekend and finally got so annoying that I saw the doctor yesterday and she gave me meds for it. Still, I couldn’t sleep tonight. Every time I’d relax I’d start coughing again. GAH! So I ended up pulling an all-nighter. Hopefully that won’t cause me problems at work today.
Anyway, I’m sitting here at 5:30am or so chatting with friends in all parts of the globe when my desk began to sway gently from side to side like I was sitting at it in a passenger car on an Amtrak train. At about the same moment I heard a movement behind me, and when I looked at the other wall my great grandmother’s picture was hanging cock-eyed. No trains going by, no trucks passing, not so much as an airplane going overhead.
Turns out it was a bonafide earthquake!
Funny how I so expected to experience my first one in New Zealand (one of the hottest earthquake zones in the world) last year and nothing happened the whole two weeks, then I come back here and BOOM! Earthquake in Grand Rapids.
Who’d a thunk it? 🙂
