We had a rather rude awakening this morning when at 4:35am we were almost literally chucked out of bed by a massive earthquake. I was very confused and both me and Phil made a mad dash for Riley's room.
Running down the hallway was like being on a boat in the middle of a storm, I was being flung against the walls. By the time I got to Riley it was all but over so we tucked Riley into our bed. There was an aftershock and then the power went out, poor Riley is scared of the dark. Nobody got much sleep and I'm pretty much running on adrenaline still.
We were extremely lucky that we weren't hurt and that nothing in the house was damaged or fell over. About the only thing that got damaged was a large concrete trough in the garden which fell over, its going to be a pain to move.
Thankfully the power is back on now so we're feeling a bit more normal. Now if only the after shocks would go away.
