At work today, there was a whole lotta shakin' goin' on!
At about 1:41 p.m., [give or take a few seconds of me freaking out] -- umm, the room started to shake.
I was working on the second floor of a massive building, with a floor above us… a floor that weighs about 8 million tons because of what is in there, on that floor.
There was myself and two women in the room.
I was the first to scream. In fact, my exact words were, "What the hell is that?"
But I said it in scream-language.
The whole BUILDING was moving -- it is difficult to describe -- but it doesn't take long for a human being to know that something of real seismic proportion is going on.
And you should not be in a building at that time.
Every man for himself! So...
I pushed my co-workers out of the way and ran down the hall and down the stairs and out the door…. where several other employees were already congregated.
It was a FOR-REAL earthquake thing.
This isn't supposed to happen here where I live. Firmly placed on the ol' Canadian Shield as I am. Seriously, I guess I will just have to wait for Pat Robertson to explain why this thing happened!
Apparently it measured 5.0 on the Richter Thingie, and the epicenter was not very far away from where I was.

The last time I felt the earth move [so to say]… well, it was a long time ago!
