We were shaken awake at 4:36 this morning by an earthquake. And we don't even live in California. Kevin and I woke up to our bed shaking and the sound of windows rattling. We jumped out of bed and ran for Dylan's room. I yelled for him to get out of bed, he sleeps on the lower level of bunk beds, and he met us in his doorway. We stood there and rode out the rest of the quake. It lasted almost 45 seconds which seems like hours when your house is shaking. The reports say that the epicenter was about 70 miles away and that it was a 5.2 quake.

This was about the sixth earthquake that I can recall feeling. It was Dylan's second one and he has declared it "cool". Oh to be twelve.

So glad you're all okay. Not the kind of excitement you want to wake up to, to say the least!

We slept thru it. If it weren't for the morning news, our family would never have known.
