Default Earthquake



Recently, as in two days ago, an Earthquake struck where I lived. It was only a 2.0 but still pretty big for where we live. It was really cool but really freaky at the same time. I was cleaning the bathroom when it happened and at that point, I was scrubbing the bathtub. As I was scrubbing, it looked like it moved. I thought it was broken or something and I tried to shake after it happen but it didn't budge. I thought that maybe I was going crazy and then I thought that maybe I moved and got a little dizzy or something. I continued cleaning it, didn't think much of it afterwards, and then a minute or so later my dad walks in and tells me that we just had an earthquake. At the first the cellphones weren't working but then they started working and once they did we started texting people and calling people to make sure they were okay. And thank God-they were. It wasn't big enough to do damage, thank God. But it was big enough that we could feel it, feel it a lot. That was the first ever earthquake I have ever experienced, and it was definitely an experience.

I made a mistake. I thought there was more damage in Virginia but I was wrong. Sure people lost their cars, windows broke, but it wasn't a lot of damage. I thought there was but there wasn't. Please forgive me. I just thought since it was a 5 something earthquake that it caused a lot of damage but it didn't.

Thanks for reading!

Finally, someone who posts something about the earthquake in the writers block instead of clogging up the stories page X_X

Where I live, we get, like, three earthquakes a day. But they're so small we usually can't feel them...

Oh wow. If earthquakes didn't cause damage and didn't hurt people then I think it would be totally cool to have them.
