We had our first* earthquake yesterday–5.0 (up to 5.25, depending where you look), about 50 miles from our house. It shook the whole building, noticeably. But by the time we figured out what had happened, it was over!

The birds and chinchilla took it very well. They’re troopers.

*OK, others have happened, but they’ve all been smaller. We’ve failed to notice them.
