Baby earthquake in Redlands

Yesterday was the first time in my life to experience an earthquake. You think that I was frighten by it but just the reverse was true. I felt a little excited. You cannot blame me for this because I came from a country that is free from natural disaster. 

It happened in the morning of July 29, 2008. Philyra and I were in the bedroom. She was having her morning nap and I was surfing net. I felt a sudden movement. It was like someone using a digging machine to excavate the foundation of the building. Then, I heard my housemate shouting at my door, "Meier, earthquake!" I had a very clear mind at that moment. I held Philyra up, opened the door, and ran out of the building with my housemate. We were safe.
