To the best of my recollection, I’ve never experienced an earthquake before. Tonight was my first one, and I confess to being slightly disappointed! I was in the bath at the time, and what I heard was something that sounded like the start of a sudden, violent storm. I thought it was a strong gust of wind and maybe some rain. And then I went back to my book and thought no more of it. It wasn’t until half an hour later that I found out we’d had a real, honest to goodness earthquake. As far as I know, nothing here was damaged. I even had to knock a glass over myself to take that photo. So we’re all fine, and my first earthquake was boring.
