Don’t know if you heard or not, but we had an earthquake yesterday.
It was my first ever. I could have gone my entire life without that particular experience.
This is my office building. See that floor way at the top? (In my defense, 10 stories is pretty big by DC standards.) That’s where I was when it hit. Of course, I had absolutely NO clue what it was when it happened.
My thoughts, in order:
1) Seriously large train (there are train tracks right behind the building and I’m used to the entire building bouncing when a train goes past several times a day).
2) Train derailment.
3) Oh shit, they’ve bombed the Capitol (which is about four blocks away) and we’re all going to die.
Earthquake was not even on my radar.
It should be pretty interesting tomorrow when the train goes by, the building starts bouncing and I freak out momentarily.
Can we never do this again, please?
