I got emails from my sisters and my mother and three cousins and two aunts yesterday, all asking about the earthquake. My own family was rather happy about it. Most of us have never felt an earthquake before, and it was just the right size-- enough to be important, but leaving no damage.
"I was surfing in my office!" said H.
"I was scared," said N.
"The books were moving around," said D, who was still in bed at 11h42 (disgraceful. But don't let me commence.)
"My daughter thought the world was coming to an end!" said the maid, laughing. "She ran out of the building screaming 'Es el fin del mundo!'"
I was just driving on the 101 freeway and didn't notice a thing.
