1347, earthquake!

This was a good one. I could see the room swaying and hear the structure creaking as it moved. This one seemed to last longer than the last one (probably less than a minute but it seemed longer).

When you live/work several stories above street level, “earthquake” takes on a whole new meaning. It’s interesting to note what goes through ones mind at a time like this. 

I had flashes of the building above falling down on me. Then, I thought, I’m in my pj’s, I don’t want to be found wearing them. Then: who cares, if the building falls, what I’m wearing will be the least of my worries.

Taiwan is on the edge of the “ring of fire”; there is a lot of seismic activity here. This earthquake was centered several hours south so I can only imagine what those poor folk felt.
