And it scared the stuffing out of me. I went and stood in the closest doorway and prayed for protection…especially that the nearby hurricane lamp wouldn’t fall on my head. Ironically, a hurricane lamp fell on my head a few days ago (just the globe) and shattered all over the floor and the furniture and the box I was packing. If I check earthquake off my bucket list, that means I don’t have to go through another one ever again, right? 5.8…in Virginia.
