We just had an earthquake. Early reports are a 6.5 centered in the backwoods of central Idaho. It shook our house in the Boise area, and made the chandelier over the dining table rock.
We also have a bell on a stand out back and it was ringing. I immediately contacted our daughter, and she felt it in Sun Valley.
The west has many fault lines, but in nearly sixty years, I’ve never felt one. There really wasn’t any danger out here in suburbia. We aren’t near any tall buildings or anything. Honestly, I thought it was kind of cool.
Guess I can check that one off my list. I’ve been trapped in Alaska by a volcano, so I don’t need to repeat that one. I feel like I ought to make a trip to see the Northern Lights now. Either that or a tropical storm, but the Northern Lights sound like more fun.
