Lately we stay up later because I now get out of bed at the time that I used to leave the condo when I was in Wisconsin. And that shifts sleep patterns.
So we were awake, in bed, looking at Instagram last week (Thursday December 17, to be exact), and I felt an earthquake! It was a quick rumble, felt like if your house was right next to the road and a big heavy truck came rumbling by. I heard some hanging items jingling around, and then it was over.
And since we were on our phones already, both Jeff and I got on the Google to get more information. Turns out, the earthquake was a very short distance from our house - probably about 7-9 miles away. It was only a 3.05, but with it so close, we really felt it!
I really am pretty excited to have felt an earthquake now. I had never ever felt one before...
Some screenshots I took on my phone on Thursday night, December 17 (click pictures to embiggen):
