And so it was.
One second long.
Quite a jolt, enough so that I was caught off guard.

At about 12:30pst, I felt my very first earthquake ever! It was so short that I thought that there was a large machine outside that was dropping something heavy on the ground and just jolted the area, but it was actually an earthquake!

Now that I’ve experienced it, I hope I never again experience one. I’m done, thanks.
