I reckon there have probably been half a dozen earthquakes in my life that I could/should have felt.? I have never noticed a single one, however.? Do they happen more at night or something?? I think I’d like to experience it at least once, in a low-risk,? northern European sort of way.? I’m not saying I want to move to San Fransisco or anything.

Since I slept through the excitement, I wasn’t terribly receptive to being woken at 2am by a husband on an adrenalin high who wanted to tell me all about it.? In fact, I assumed he was referring to the crying three-year-old when he demanded to know if I’d slept through it, hence the rather confused response.? Ah, well.
