I woke up last night to my whole room shaking. The bed felt like it was moving sideways. Things on the walls were shaking. It felt like huge earthquake. I sat up in bed and things were still shaking. As soon as it seemed to stop i jumped out of bed opened the door and made Ribbon come in the room. Why? Because I wanted to make sure that he was okay. Then being the Californian I am went back to bed thinking, "That was bizarre. I hope the gas lines are okay. I'm too tired to bother trying to find out where they are and check them".
I was convinced this morning that there was an actual earthquake, but since it was in the middle of the night and I was half asleep, I decided to check the internet to see if I had been having some bizarre dream. No sign of a huge earthquake on CNN.com
It seems that in addition to having dreams where I am falling and wake up when I slam into the mattress, I'm now having dreams where my whole room is shaking. Am I having waking dreams? Did I sleep walk? I'm a little disturbed.
HOWEVER, after having just finished writing the above Krista, my roomate called (She was off camping in Morrow Bay this weekend) and asked if everything was okay, because she heard there was an earthquake centered near campus. Apparently it was centered 10 miles off the coast of Isla Vista which is at the most five miles from me.
I'm not crazy! I was laughing so hard when Krista called. I'm not insane. I actually was awakened by the room shaking. whew! No damages apparently. Just me questioning my sanity.Posted by nuala at May 09, 2004 01:10 PM
