I Felt the Earth Move Under My Feet…

And wow was it a scary feeling. It started as a rumble, kind of like a subway car beneath my feet, only I’m on the 10th floor, so it was no subway!

Then the building swayed back and forth. Like someone had pushed it and now it was recoiling back into place.

Being in New York and with the wounds of 9/11 still not healed, my first thought was – attack.

Then when we realized what had happened, slightly less panic. Just a little less. I mean, the “small” earthquake moved a 40+ story building.

I know those out on the West Coast are sniggling at us wussie Easterners. They probably sleep right through earthquakes like this one. But not us New Yorkers! We’re the city that never sleeps, right?

Anyway, my friend and fellow author Keirsten Krum has offered up her views on our little tremblor and also rounded up some of the best tweets from Twitter. Do not miss this blog post, but be warned, you may spew your coffee all over your keyboard.

Have a great and bedrock stable day.
