Earthquake!

Whoa! Plate tectonics decided to add a bit of excitement to our lives this evening! We had a bit of an earthquake. Nothing too big, but big enough to give us a bit of a fright, send us scurrying into doorways, and freak the cats out quite thoroughly. Munchkin didn't want to come out from under the bed for quite a bit afterward. Something fell over in Shannon's office.

After hunting around online, Shannon and I found that it was only a 3.9 on the Richter scale, but it was almost right under our butts, so it was stronger than most of the earthquakes I've been in. It was very brief but quite an attention-getting jolt!
