In any case, we have been planning a trip out to the cabin for the last several days, but the rain and high winds has kept delaying our departure. We do need to make it out there though, as the 5.3 magnitude earthquake last week was centered in Skwentna which is very near to the cabin. Hopefully it hasn't fallen off of it's foundation or anything like that!
I wish I had something interesting to say about the earthquake, but apparently I'm less aware of my surroundings than I even realized! It happened around 6am, and woke both Karl and Willow up. This is how it went:
Karl: Do you feel that?
Me: Feel what?
Karl: The earthquake.... There, it just stopped.
Me: Um. No?
I guess my head must spin on a daily basis so I don't notice when the ground is shaking beneath my feet. So my first 'major' earthquake went by quietly, although I would hazard a guess that we've already had a bunch more.
