We survived the earthquake! Yes, we had a little earthquake up here in New England last night.
We were upstairs putting the girls to bed when it happened. I was sitting on Kate's little toddler bed between the two girls reading a bedtime story out loud and Mike was sitting on the floor on a bean bag chair. I didn't feel a thing, but Mike did and mentioned that the house was shaking. A plane was flying over our house right at the moment of the quake. We both said that it didn't seem like it was low enough to cause the house to shake, and we puzzled for a moment over what had caused the rattling. Later, Mike checked the news and saw the articles about the earthquake in southern Maine! It was just a little 4.0 magnitude and lasted only about 10 seconds, but we definitely noticed it all the way down here. Weird.
