A Little Shake, Shake, Shake

Yesterday afternoon we got home from church around 4 pm and Randy and I were in our bedroom talking while he was packing to go turkey hunting today. All of a sudden there is some shaking like the kids just all jumped off the furniture together and then there was this sudden jolt of our entire house and a loud noise. We had no idea what it was so we went to check on the kids who had felt it too and then went outside and had neighbors out there wondering what was happenning too. We couldn't see anything and about an hour later went for a short drive to see if there was a crash somewhere or an explosion cause that is what we thought it was. We found nothing. Nothing on the news last night or this morning about it. So I went to the USGS website and guess what.... 2.9 magnitude earthquake centered in Santaquin just 10 miles east of us. CRAZY!!! I've never felt an earthquake before, not that it was bad or anything, I mean nothing even fell off the walls, no cracks, nada....thankfully! I don't think that I really want to experience a real quake though. Not the most devastating news, but what an experience anyway!!!

That is crazy. I can't believe we have earthquakes in Utah. Only thing crazier....tornadoes in Idaho. Oh wait, we had one of those last year that touched down in Pocatello.
