Earthquake!

19 Jun

We just had a teeny earthquake, which surprised us since we thought we’d left them behind in California. It was a 5.2 centered in Moe (never heard of it). Apparently 73 miles from Melbourne. No damage reported yet. A good way to quicken the heart for a little while.

    Ha! We laugh at your punny 5.2 earthquakes!
    Remember when we had an earthquake during a slumber party and I asked everybody to try and stand on one foot? Mom was near the epicenter in Palm Springs.

      Oh yes, I remember that. All the car alarms went off.

    Was it a long rolling one or a short jerky one? Do they get freaked out over small earthquakes there?

      Earthquakes are very rare in Victoria. It’s the only thing on the news. They keep showing the 1 token super market where cans fell of the shelves. No real damage, no injuries. I thought the Australians were supposed to be tough! Rob even got a press release from the school.
