ROCKIN' AND ROLLIN'
If any of you have been watching the news today, you may know that eastern Nevada was hit by a 6.0 earthquack that was felt in California, Utah, and even Idaho. I was one of the lucky ones to feel it this morning! We woke up early to Alyssa standing in the doorway, wrapped in a towel, complaining that there was no hot water. Dave went downstairs to find that the hot water heater went out on us last night. We were awake so he decided to do some work in the office. I was attempting to go back to sleep when I felt the bed rock back and forth, much like the motion of a ship at sea. I looked up to see the blinds moving and a hanger that was on my curio cabinet about to fall down. It was weird. At first I thought Brandon wa s kicking the wall but then realized that had to be an earthquack! Just then my phone rang and my neighbor said, "did you feel that?" I sat up and said," so I am not crazy....was that an earthquack?" We turned on the news to find out, yes indeed, we had just experienced our first earthquack. Luckily, there was no damage around here and most poeple were still asleep and did not even know what had happened until the noon news! What a way to start the day!
