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.
