Earthquake!

The cottage is still standing, and the little Wigworthy's are fine! It was quite something - it woke both me and Mr. Wigworthy up (he jumped out of bed with the shock). Everything was rattling (including the bed!) and there was quite a rumbling noise. Even though I don't ever remember experiencing an earthquake before I knew what it was straight away (apparently I have been through a few - just not powerful enough for me to notice them). The news conflicts on the magnitude - some say 5.2, others say 5.6. Anyway, it was strong enough to scare me, and left me counting my blessings - I realised again how fragile life is.

I'm glad you're okay! We've only had one significant one around here, one that occurred barely an hour after I fell asleep, and I slept right through it!

I'm glad to hear you and all the Wigworthys are okay. Call me strange...but I find MINOR earthquakes exciting!

STrange as this is I thought of you before I thought of my family over in England.

Once again, good to know everything is all right.
