Last night at around 7:12 p.m., we had an earthquake. I couldn't believe it! I was at work ( a nursing home) when it happened. Shook the floor, the walls, etc. The residents didn't flinch. I knew instantly that it was an earthquake. Funny thing is that earlier in the day, the propane gas tanks were being fixed and for an instant, I thought one of the tanks had exploded. My second thought was that there was an explosion at a factory not too far from where I work, but then I realized there wasn't the sound of an explosion or the sound of sirens. Was a bit scary, yet exciting. I've felt these small earthquakes twice before here in New England, but they're very rare. The staff started calling friends and family to find out what was going on when my hubby told me he just heard on the news that it was an earthquake with the epicenter at Lake Arrowhead (Waterboro, Maine) registering a 4.6. Of course, we now know that it was downgraded to a 4.0. Another story to share with the grandchildren.

Wishing my followers a wonderful (and quake-free) day!
