DC Earthquake - 5.9 and Feeling Fine

DC is a city of drama and discord, and today was no exception.  We haven't reached agreement yet on whether it was a "major earthquake" or a "small earthquake."  Personally, I like Tennyson's description:

It was like a 250-foot elephant lifting the whole world!  First, we were in Target eating.  Then we were in the toilet paper aisle.  I was hiding in the toilet paper.  Suddenly, something shook and then the ceiling started falling down and some things started falling off the shelves.  Everyone was getting out as fast as they could.  I didn't know what to do.  But we ran out too and made a plan.  It was annoying.  It was an annoying earthquake.
 (We're all OK -- thanks for all the calls, texts, emails, etc.)

I'm glad you guys are okay. Now that I've experienced some earthquakes personally, I know how scary it feels! I get sick every time I hear about them!! Glad you're safe.
