Have you ever been in an EARTHQUAKE!?!
Me neither...
until Saturday night.
My  has started racing by just thinking about it.
 Not that anything serious happened or anyone was hurt, but you don't know that will be the outcome at that moment, do you.
It was 11 p.m. and Jordan was getting ready to take theSout for a potty break. He disappeared around the corner and I thought 'Gosh, he must be running/playing with Cadbury for the front door.'
Next thought, 'No, that's too loud. The people above us must be making all that ruckus.'
Then I saw Jordan's face

 and I KNEW what was happening.
Knowing the earth is shaking is very unsettling.
It lasted about a minute and we later found out it was a magnitude 5.6 quake.
{Not BIG, but not little.}
Like I said, no harm done.  
I am missing  Arizona and its safety from Mother Nature.
Speaking of Dear Mother Nature, we are supposed to see tornadoes in these parts this evening while we sleep. 
Ahh, how Pleasant.
{P.S. As I wrote this post, I felt an unpleasantly large aftershock...this place is gonna be the death of me!}

Sweet dreams!

That is all very scary for you, especially not having grown up with that kind of severe weather. I don't know what to tell you except prayer can be a great comfort in a storm. I pray for your safety. Love you!!!
