Yup, you read that correctly. We were shaken up whilst we were having a nice nap in the warm sunpuddles the weather was gifting us with. A furry rude and unwelcome interruption:(
One moment we were asleep, the next we were totally spooked.We were not going to stay where we were shaking. And not only shaking but the noise was loud and raucous to our meezer ears. And dog-guy frenzied barks didn't help either, though he claims he was trying to bark the shaking away. And just as we thought the shaking was done, well there was another pund. YIKES!
Meowmy thought something had broken or exploded, but that was not the case. Pawppy was mowing the tops off the grass blades, and he was making his own noise and vibrations...the things in the cupboards were noisy too...and the piano was making some music to join the noises...all its strings were vibrating.
Earlier some helicopters were flying overhead, and yes they too can make a lot of noise and vibration, but this was the noise that would need a dozen, all flying at low altitude. Nope, no metal burds nearby.
No fleet of extra heavy trucks either.
Well then...it was an earthquake! OMC!!
Of magnitude 4.2 on the Richter scale...at 1223pm, May 2, 2015, centered about 14 miles from our den. No wonder we was a shaking...
The second shaker was an aftershock.
It was the talk of the evening at meowmy's workplace, some of her residents had felt it too.
Pawppy? He said 'nope, I didn't notice a thing.' MOL! (He was using the lawnmower after all.)
And it is a full moon too...what a day! Meowmy said some of her residents were in the crazy mode...and one of her co workers said it feels like the full moon is hovering over our boulding 24/7, MOL!! Ah, well, that is how it goes. At least now we are able to snooze and cuddle without anymore shaking. The previous significant shaker in this region was decades ago. As far as we are concerned, we hope the next one if any is lots of decades down the road of time, because well, they are just too scary!
