Earthquake!!!

Yes, can you believe it?! Oklahoma City had a 4.5 magnitude earthquake this morning just after 9:00 a.m. and I felt it!!!! This is one of the largest recorded earthquakes in Oklahoma history.

I was upstairs getting ready (a little later than normal because I was taking it easy today :) and I was sitting on the bed. All of a sudden, the bed started shaking, our whole room was shaking and I could hear the jewelry in our jewelry boxes shaking! It was amazing! The thought of an earthquake seemed crazy, but I knew it wasn't the wind (ocasionally, we'll get strong gusts that seem to shake the house!). It only lasted about 10 seconds and I ran downstairs to see if anyone else had felt it but they didn't. I didn't think anymore about it until mommy was talking with one of my uncles who had called to see if we did okay in the earthquake. I was so surprised! It really was an earthquake!!!

This is the second time I've been in an earthquake. The first time I was about 2 1/2 and we were living on Misawa AFB in Japan. Only that time, it was a 7.8 earthquake in December and the center was about 10 miles out in the ocean. I remember mommy grabbing me out of bed and us standing in the doorway. Our house was a mess!!! Mommy and daddy said we had about $2,000 worth of damage!
