OMG, this was the scariest feeling ever. We just had a 4.8 earthquake and everything in my home was shaking like crazy. My poor cat ran under a chair and I just froze. My legs won't stop shaking.
Thank God, we are all okay.

Happy you are ok. Earthquakes are the norm here but if you aren't used to them they can be scary. There have been more than usual lately around the Pacific ring of fire, you are far away from that but when one tectonic plate slips it affects other also.

That is so scary, Joan. I have only experienced a light and short one before, but it was terrifying. I am glad you are alright.

The good thing is the earth quakes only last a few minutes... but it is a bit unnerving...

I heard about your quake on TV ! That was really scary. I am so glad nobody was injured too. Take care and I am happy that you were not hurt.

I can't even imagine living in places where their earthquakes are devastating. I shouldn't complain
