I feel the earth move under my feet...

And I don't mean literally or because of love!
Today at around 1:50pm there was a 5.8 magnitude earthquake in Virginia which was felt 
all the way here in NYC!

At first I didn't know what was going on, it seemed so surreal and if not for all the news channels broadcasting and going crazy with what just happened I would have thought it was all a hallucination.
Miguelito was sitting on the couch with
Manhattan and I was sitting on the armchair. When Manhattan started getting all crazy and barking
like a mad-dog, next thing I know our building feels like it's shaking and the couches
start moving. It must have been no more than 30 seconds but it really felt like more than that.
Thank God it wasn't more than a horrible scare, and after some scary moments like not being
able to communicate with my dad, or mom and sister who were all at different places but ok and just
a little shaken as well, oh and let me not forget my child who couldn't stop crying and 
thinking we were going to die - I blame it on watching to many movies!
Everything was back to normal.

I for one pray that we never go beyond this scare ever again, New York and it's people 
have been through enough scary and horrible moments as it is!

  1. I thought I had ghosts in my house or a plane crashed here in Philadelphia. Once I found out what it was I felt very bad for the people in New York. I know how scared I was and I can only imagine how scary it was for you!
