There I was, watching an episode of Lost, when all of a sudden the house started to slide backward and forward. My first reaction was "what are these construction guys doing now?" but after going outside and seeing the light posts swaying I realized it wasn't construction.
It was an earthquake.
I'd never experienced an earthquake before, and this was not what I was expecting. It was more of a sliding than a shaking. It wasn't very violent, wasn't very scary. It was actually kind of fun.
But what a weird weather day huh? Earthquake, Tornado (touching down in Midland) and some serious Thunderstorms.
Kind of makes you want to be a stormchaser.
***The Toronto Star has a good explanation of how earthquakes can occur nowhere near major fault lines.***
