DC Earthquake

I just returned home from Paris last night and what a welcome home I received today – a 5.9 earthquake! I have to admit an earthquake is the last thing that ran through my mind as my computer screen started to shake and then everything else. Fortunately my co-worker is from California so he told me to get under my desk. I did. The shaking stopped, we stood up, and people started pouring through the emergency exit. Originally, I thought it was construction, but alas it was not. Two hours later, I’m home and the school next door is bustling with students waiting outside for parents to get them. Always something!
