Sitting in my West Michigan office earlier today, my chair started to sway. I felt light-headed, like I was experiencing BPPV all over again. Instant dread took hold. But – as soon as it was happening, it seemed to pass. “That’s weird, I thought.” Because I regularly battle low blood sugar, I immediately reached for a high protein snack.
Moving on to next task at hand, I didn’t think anything more about it until I read of the earthquake that took place in Virginia today around 1:51 pm E.T. I knew that had to be it.
AP reports indicate that this was one of the largest ever recorded earthquakes in the DC area. The depth of the quake was only around a 1/2 a mile and that explains why so many felt it.
Immediately I thought of old friends .. and new blogging friends .. in and around that area.
I thought of all those who’d survived 9-11 in DC, New York and Pennsylvania and wondered if this caused instant panic in them, too.
I said a silent prayer that no one would be hurt or worse yet, killed.
How about you? Did you feel the earthquake today?
