It's like an earthquake ...

I was roused from my sleep at 3AM. There was something wrong. Indeed, I felt dizzy, the door was creaking, the vertical blinds were swaying ... an earthquake! I quickly woke my wife and we both huddled there, waiting if it will get stronger. This tremor was the type that swayed (the other one is the up-down motion which is more destructive). We heard Arnold, who's in the room next door, open his lights and hastily go down the stairs. After a while it subsided, and Arnold went back to his room.

I slept lightly after that, what with the 1990 Baguio earthquake in our minds. We learned later in the news that the epicenter was in Bataan, measuring 7.2 in the Richter scale. Nobody was hurt, nor property damaged. Thank goodness for that, what with the recent losses in the storm that passed by Tarlac and Pampanga recently.

So here I am at work, a bit sleepy ...
