I really didn't know what was going on, but headed to a doorway. I don't think I ever made it there or if I did stayed there because I was distracted by pictures falling off shelves and the dogs barking (I'm watching my friends dog while they are on vacation). The few minutes it lasted I tried calling Josh over and over to quickly find cell phones were not working. I just wanted confirmation of what was happening, and someone to talk to about it! I finally got him on our land line on his cell, where he told me he was evacuating his office building.
Then I turned to google-"DC Earthquake," nothing - then gchat, "um, was that just an earthquake" to all my open chats then more started popping up-are you ok? I turned to facebook for confirmation, and my newsfeed was on fire. Ok at least I know that it happened. Texted my parents, and a few friends. Turned on the news. White House, Pentagon, The Hill all evacuated. Ok, I felt better I know what it was and our house wasn't imploding-ha!
The news just reported that impromptu happy hours are breaking out all over DC, if only I could have a cocktail, it is a truly beautiful day to be sitting out on the waterfront in Georgetown...
Side note, the dogs are still very skiddish even though currently snoozing-the ice machine in the freezer just made a noise and they both started running around like crazy, I guess we are still on high alert over here!
