the quake

The earth shook today, and we were rattled, both literally and figuratively. My initial
instinct was "terrorist attack", then I thought "a tornado with sunny skies??", but it didn't
even cross my mind that it was an earthquake. We live 32 miles from the epicenter of
the 5.8 magnitude earthquake. There hasn't been an earthquake like it in this area since
1897. We were evacuated from our work buildings, cell phone service was non-existent,
and we had some cleaning up to do once we got home. Most schools and some downtown
areas are closed tomorrow for safety inspections. Sadly, the Washington Monument is also
closed indefinitely due to found damage. The most important thing is that everyone we
know is safe and sound. Thank you to everyone who checked up on us!
