I experienced my first earth quake ever. Talk about an adventure!
Today, Friday February 15, 2008 there was a 5.0 earthquake in Lebanon that shook our apartment in Tel Aviv.
Brent and I were sitting at the kitchen table and I felt everything start to sway. I looked up and saw the plant in the corner also swaying and I heard one of the closed bedroom doors hitting the frame over and over. I looked at Brent and asked if he felt it. He said he did. We immediately began searching the web for info, to see if it had registered anywhere. Brent surfed what T.V. channels we have to see if anyone was talking about it. I even called my friend Kate, from Ulpan to see if she was at her apartment and had felt it. She was not and did not.
About an hour later it popped up on the Quake Sheet. If you want to see it go to http://www.drudgereport.com/, scroll down to the bottom and click on Quake Sheet and follow the links to the region of Israel.
Crazy stuff. Brent is going to get t-shirts made for us that say:
WE SURVIVED THE QUAKE OF 2008
p.s. Don't worry, we're fine. It was just a little sway.
