Earthquake – Costa Rica Style!

We just had an earthquake and it was a BFD!

A strong earthquake occurred at 08:07:23 (UTC) on Saturday, November 20, 2004. The magnitude 6.2 event has been located in COSTA RICA. The hypocentral depth was poorly constrained. (This event has been reviewed by a seismologist.)

I was absolutely in another world sound asleep. BIG TIME noise and rushing sound. Bed was shaking, house was moving.

I woke up and for some reason thought it was my girlfriend making all the noise. Seemed reasonable at the time.

The dog was going crazy, the lora (parrot) was saying bad things from within her cage.

About two seconds later, my housekeeper Jeanette came flying into our bedroom spouting Spanish a mile a minute… Ricky Ricardo style… though this should not be too much of a surprise as she only speaks Spanish.

My son called cause the thing shook him out of bed, and everybody was on MSN
talking about it. Everybody called everybody to be sure they were OK.


It was COOL (but a little scary!)

I am going back to bed.
