We just had the biggest earthquake of the summer – a 4.7 at 12:57pm our time – about 38 miles from Homer. Following is the map (hint: look for the big red box.)
We have lots of little earthquakes nearby all the time – this time it was big enough to notice. At first I thought Amy had snuck up on me and was shaking the back of my chair to get my attention. I said something like “hey babe” but the shaking continued. I turned around and Amy wasn’t there. I then noticed that my computer monitors were bouncing around at which point “EARTHQUAKE!” entered my brain. I rolled with the last five seconds (it was about 10 seconds long) and then went up stairs to announce the event. Amy thought I was slamming doors down stairs, so she didn’t make the connection until I told her.
