Day 327: Earthquake

It happened again! Last year we had a huge earthquake in the middle of the night that freaked me out. We hadn't had any rocket attacks yet, so that's what I thought it was. My whole room shook like crazy and everything fell off the walls. The same thing happened this time just over in the Hindu Kush mountains. I thought it was a helicopter taking off, but the vibrating got stronger and stronger and wouldn't go away for what seemed like the longest time. About an hour afterwards I saw reports on the CNN news from Kabul. The guys said he's from California and has never felt anything like it. I just imagine those pictures of California where houses fall into giant pits and slide off hillsides and start huge fires. Luckily we don't have any mansions to fall into holes, but I do have a little shack that might disappear if a whole did open up! EEK!

It's good to hear you're ok, I didn't know of an earthquake there, but we get our fair share of them every year, so I know how scary they are! :S

Like others, I hadn't heard about the earthquake. So glad that you are ok; they can be pretty scary, especially if you don't know what is going on (the one I experienced was in Oregon). Take care!
