Blogs Have A Little Earthquake News
I just froze and clutched my desk, hoping it would pass but the ground just kept swaying and swaying and swaying. In my mind I was thinking "oh my god, we’re still moving, why are we still moving?"
Another blogger’s cat apparently didn’t like the commotion. It was a deep quake and no tsunami is anticipated.
We were just rocked by a substantial earthquake – magnitude 7.3, centered not far west of Martinique. Now that’s what I call scary – about 2 minutes of sustained shaking. Cars rocked, motorbike shook, water tank shook and slopped water… and Puss fled.
