My first earthquake!!!!

My first earthquake!!!!

So last night at about 11:30 pm, I was on the phone with my mom and I felt the house shake and heard a loud boom. J thought it was ShortShorts’ wood stove exploding or a tree falling on the house, but after further investigation, we found no evidence. There were no sirens either, so we figured it was some sort of explosion far away.

Come to find out this morning, it was a 3.1-magnitude earthquake centered in the town next to us!! My very first! And apparently the first one in NH since 1810. I don’t have Facebook so I had to update the blog!

J’s first earthquake was when he worked in Denali National Park and he said it was a much bigger magnitude and lasted about a minute. This one only lasted about 6 seconds.
