Because all anyone is going to remember about this week is that the East Coast had an earthquake
Not going to lie, I was scared. I've never been through one before. I was sitting at my desk and realized the wall above the fish tank was moving. I got up to ask my two coworkers what the hell was going on and then everything started shaking again. I fell into a wall as stuff fell off the bookshelves around me. I huddled in the doorway with my coworkers and watched the floor ripple. It was honestly like a dream, I mean, I've felt earthquakes in dreams and that's exactly what it felt like. It was incredibly surreal.
As soon as the shaking stopped, we bolted for the door. I couldn't get cell service until much later that evening and as a result, my husband drove frantically to my job because he thought I was lying dead somewhere because he couldn't get ahold of me. Upside? He finally got to see where I worked.
And now apparently a hurricane is barreling our way. We had a minor earthquake and a tornado last August. I wonder what Summer 2012 looks like? Apocalypse lite?
