I was sitting at my desk and all of a sudden my chair started shaking and the door rattling. I hopped up hurried into my boss's office and said, "What's going on?" as the room shook.
"Earthquake," he replied.
I can't imagine being caught in one that destroys and causes fatalities, although for a few seconds my imagination was working overtime. All I could think was, Where do I go? What do I do? We have all kind of drills were I work for a variety of situations, but this one had never come up before.
A couple of the windows cracked on the floor above me, but that seems to be the extent of it. Later, after the excitement died down, my husband, who works almost directly above me one floor up, said, "I'm glad I didn't drop in(i.e.through the ceiling) for a visit." Whew, me too.
