A MOVING EXPERIENCE

This morning as John and I sat here having coffee and starting our day... we felt the entire house shake and my monitor began moving. I looked overhead to check the ceiling, because I thought it might be "moving". There was a slight rumbling sound. I quickly looked out the window, to see if the wind was blowing. The plants were still. We both just looked at each other... wondering if it really was happening. The center is about 141 miles from our neck of the woods.
It was all very exciting.

By the way... all is fine. Nothing damaged.
