Last night for maybe the 3rd time in 100 years the Washington D.C. area had a noticeable earthquake. For anyone living in the area that felt it or was woken up by it, it was quite a shock. It’s not something that they are used to. In response there is a large group of people who feel they have now lived though a life changing and traumatic experience.
Although the tremor came in at a measly 3.6 on the Richter Scale, this matters not to the terrified individuals who survived this life threatening act of mother nature. The survivors have banned together even making a Facebook page and t-shirts to show their camaraderie and bravery. The lucky few who have made it out alive are I’m sure going to be telling theirs stories for ages…and I’m sure there will be multiple books deals and movies made from the experiences.
I’ve heard of a few accounts, from a magazine falling from a coffee table, a picture on the wall thrown askew…and even one event where a cell phone was bumped from the night stand (although sources could not confirm if this was due to it being set on vibrate). Here’s to all the lucky people out there that survived this catastrophe. Head over to the Facebook page and mingle with all your fellow survivors.
Survivor Tip: For the next Washington D.C. Earthquake…to ensure survival, sleep through it just like you did this one.
