Shake, Rattle & Roll!

Yep, this morning I woke up to an earthquake!! It wasn't very big and didn't last long - but it still was exciting!! Brandi & I both were up right away and turned on Komo to see what they said. It took them almost 10 minutes before Komo mentioned it and then a little longer for it to be confirmed! For awhile, Brandi & I thought we might have imagined it! But it finally was confirmed at a 4.5 magnitude.

I woke up to hear stuff rattling - and before I could figure out what it was everything started shaking and it was obvious it was an earthquake.

This was nothing compared to the 6.8 'Nisqually' Earthquake in February 2001, but it still was an earthquake and still fun to talk about!!
