I was probably one of the few folks who were up and fully awake when the tremors hit. I was sitting at my computer, browsing the internet and responding to emails.
When the quake started, it felt like I was on a boat and the engine was beginning to reve. Then my computer desk and basement began to rumble. My brass fireplace tools began to shake into each other and I felt like my body was being pulled apart. It was a very wierd sensation.
I got up from my chair and went to the front door thinking maybe a truck had hit our cul-de-sac again and expected to see something in the street outside my door. Nothing was there.
It really was the wierdiest experience. What was your reaction to the quake?
