earthquake.

I was at school this morning, and roughly at 11:40 the building started to shake. The first thing I thought of was "DUCK AND COVER" so I immediately crawled under the desk. Seconds later, I heard people telling us to run outside to an open area. After we ran outside, there were some guys on scaffolding (like the ones they use to wash windows), they were screaming, but more because they were having fun dangling up on top of the building, swaying back and forth. My school is actually located several miles from the epicenter, so it shook us up pretty good.

Fortunately there were no causalities or major injuries! Also, school was canceled for the day! :)

I'm at home now, and when I first looked at my craft table, I was like "oh man the earthquake completely knocked things around!" but then I realized it is just messy. ha ha. Time to clean up! :)

:)

My sister blogged about it, too! I guess it just was very traumatic for a lot of people in Southern California.

I am surprised that they told you to exit the building? Around here we duck and cover for sure.

Glad to hear you're okay! What a scary experience. I've lived in Alaska for years, so I've been in earthquakes before. No fun at all.

P.S. I laughed about your messy craft table! Wish I had an earthquake to blame for mine!

I was at work (in L.A.) when the earthquake hit. Everyone just went about their normal business because it wasn't as bad there as it was at your school.

Aww, your craft table suffered some 'damage'. When I got home, some of my plushies fell off the shelf. But that's it.

If only you could blame the craft mess on the earthquake! : )

Glad you are okay! Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog today. :) Their birthdays are 12 days apart (minus 4 years, of course!). If my baby had come on her due date, they would be a bit more spaced out, which is what I was hoping for...oh well. :) Not God's plan.
