We had an earthquake this evening that measured 4.7 on the Richter scale, ONE YEAR TO THE DAY from the last big earthquake!!
How’s THAT for a bizarre coincidence?
I didn’t feel it, though. EPI and I were in the kitchen making dinner – very late because EPI had been putting up new blinds in the kitchen and it took about two hours longer than expected, so we [well, YT] were absolutely faint with hunger and kind of, you know, spaced out. AAH came barging out of her room: DID YOU FEEL THAT? DID YOU FEEL IT? WE JUST HAD AN EARTHQUAKE! and I was, like, “Girrl, you ‘magining things.” And AAH was, like, “No, everything in my room was shaking, the table and the computer and …” and EPI was, like, “Is there a big truck idling out on the street or something making things shake in your room”, and I’m like, “No, EPI, if there was a truck out there it wouldn’t just make things shake in her room, they’d shake in here, too,” and he’s like, “True,” and I’m like, “Well nothing rattled in here,” and thought, ‘that girrl’s got some overactive imagination.”
And, boy, did I feel stupid when I saw the news.
Anywayz, no harm done, nobody hurt and no reported damage. The epicenter was about 8 km north of Grindavík [Blue Lagoon area], which is about, oh, 40 km from here. And there have been lots of wee aftershocks.
Just thought you might like to know.
