An earthquake of 5.1 magnitude and several aftershocks struck Orange County on Friday night at 9 pm. The shaking walls, swinging vertical blinds, my wobbling bed, earth’s crunching sounds(I live on the ground floor), scared the living daylights out of me. But everything is alright and no major damages were reported except for some landslides on the freeway and gas/water pipeline damages. I did not sleep very well because I was freaked out and was a ball of nerves the whole night.
Post the quake, my phone calls were not connecting and there was no network. My calls eventually connected and I managed to scare my parents also. I don’t even need to describe how scared I was and how much I needed my mommy and daddy. But speaking to them and transferring my worries to them felt better. 😀
So, even if my calls were failing, the internet was fit as a fiddle. I could post the mandatory ‘OMG, earthquake!’ status on Facebook in the very next minute of the quaking.
And hence, all is well with the world.
