Ummm...I just left one small detail out of my magnificent plan.....the gate keys. Yep...I'm responsible for the lives of my children and my dog and I left the gate keys in the house. So, we just prayed and stood outside and watched the houses rock back and forth until it stopped. Praise the Lord we didn't need to go all the way out into the street. The maid next door was outside also and she was terrified. Poor thing:(
Greg almost fell over at the phone store, he thought he was fainting and then realized it was an earthquake. Have you ever been in one before? They are so strange. We felt them all the time in Costa Rica....small ones...and most of the time we had to be sitting still to feel them. If you were walking around or riding in a car, we never felt one. But this was HUGE! So, he ran outside with all of the other people and drove home. He said there were people all in the streets and wrecks. I could hear lots of sirens from our house....I only noticed because we never hear sirens.
We are all fine. I did have some anxious thoughts before bedtime thinking things like, "Oh my goodness...what if this happens again with a big after shock while we are sleeping...will I wake up? What if? What if?" Then finally I decided it would be a much better idea.....to just pray:)
I haven't heard of any deaths caused by the earthquake. Praise the Lord! Please continue to pray for this city!!!!
P.S. Don't worry....we had a family meeting and we have a new plan if this ever happens again. I was a Girl Scout you know....I will be more prepared:) Love ya'll!!!!
