Never thought I’d experience an earthquake–however mild–here in the Detroit area.
About a half hour ago, I was sitting at my desk, typing on my computer, and I felt like the room was shaking. I was wondering: are they doing work in the building that is that powerful that it makes the building shake? Could this be a tremor? Nah, I thought. These things don’t happen in Detroit. Then, I thought, maybe it’s my imagination, and I’m dizzy.
Turns out, it was not my imagination. It was, indeed, an earthquake. Registered a 5.5. Whoa.
Damn–one of the last advantages to living in Detroit, now crossed off the list.
