Normally I sleep through these things humans call earthquakes, but NOT THIS MORNING. At 5:30ish am Mom, Zeke and I were shaken awake! The three of us were looking around at each other and the world was MOVING. I didn't like it at all and tucked my tail between my legs to feel a bit secure. Mom calmed me down even though I could tell she was a bit spooked by it, as well.
I asked my friend Google how big it was and this is what I learned at the USGS site:
I guess it was only a 4.0 in magnitude, whatever that means. The humans say "that's not that big." I say if it woke me out of a deep sleep that's plenty big for me. There have been a bunch of little ones since, but I haven't felt those. Luckily, we are all ok!
