My heart goes out to all of my friends who suffered an earthquake especially to those who had never suffered one before and thought they never would.
I am so glad you are all well or at least those we heard from are and assume the rest are also.
NOW I WANT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING FUNNY ABOUT THE ONLY TREMOR I WAS IN. It was not big enough to be called an earthquake.
When I lived in OAXACA Mexico I lived on the fourth floor of an apartment building.
One night I felt the bed shaking and thought it was my co-worker shaking as she was a very nervous person. Then I began to hear dishes rattling so decided it was an earthquake. Since I had never been in one I had no idea what to do I went back to sleep. The next morning I found out it was a tremor as it wasn't big enough to be an earthquake.
Needless to say it did not help my co workers nerves. She soon left to go back home and I went to teach in a Bible Institute in Monterrey.
Years later they had the big one in Mexico City which was huge and destroyed much of the downtown area. I saw some of the ruins on a trip there afterwards
