QUAKE!

At 4:56 this morning, I was lying in bed, awake, trying desperately to fall back asleep by reading the Martha Grimes book I have out from the library. The dogs were sprawled out nearby. The children were asleep, as was my husband. Only the hamster, by nature nocturnal, was awake to keep me company. And then!

Nothing.

I felt absolutely nothing, and in fact thought that the report of an earthquake hitting Winston-Salem, which I heard on the radio as I drove the oldest to school this morning, well, I thought it was fake. You know, a radio joke.

Apparently it happened, though.
