Hello friends, Shake Rattle and Roll! No, it’s not a new dance craze it’s the earthquake we experienced on Wednesday! On top of the covid19 chaos, we had an earthquake, really, really? Yes, really.
Hubby and I were up and I was set to do my usual morning routine, have some tea, read comments, visit blogs. Izzy goes under my desk to go back to sleep. He has a cozy bed and cover under there ( wink). Hubby was setting up a work area for the COVID19 work from home situation. I had just taken a sip of tea and…
Shake, Rattle and Roll! I grabbed Izzy and yelled down to my husband ( who was already halfway up the stairs) earthquake! We both stood under door frames, facing each other with looks of disbelief.
Friends, it felt like it lasted a very long time. Our hearts were pounding and the house was making a loud roaring sound ( we think that was the vibration of the earthquake and our windows). We had a 5.7 magnitude earthquake!
After it stopped shaking, rattling and rolling, hubby’s phone rang. He had to go to work ( he is in charge of the emergency incident team). He has been at work, 10- 14 hours a day ever since, dealing with all the issues the earthquake has caused.
Not to seem to overdramatic, but it was really hard to say goodbye when he left so soon after the earthquake. What followed was 80 tremors, I only felt three and one was a 4.3 it set my “uh oh” in gear. But only lasted a few seconds. Hubby called to check on me straight after.
We are actually 30 minutes away from the epicenter. I prayed so hard that everyone was safe and to send extra angels to watch over, my hubby, while he was at work.
You know how things often happen in three? Well….
- 1- COVID19
- 2- I had been having some terrible seizures (a week prior to the earthquake.) they have calmed down a bit now.
- 3- Earthquake
Yes, the cherry on top.
I am blessed, I am grateful, I am loved, I am alive and so are all of the amazing people I know and love.
So we push on in faith, knowing we are never alone and that acts of nature can occur anywhere and at any time. We are taking precautions for COVID19 and my seizures have slowed down considerably and today is a new day.
