It was about 8 pm tonight. I was alone at home. Upstairs. Fully focussed on an interesting investigation for work.
Then, I heard someone crashing into the apartment wall. Things fell. There were heavy footsteps running up the stairs. More running. More banging on the wall. My adrenaline surged. I screamed at the intruder, letting him know that I was home and warning him to leave. Then, I slowly walked down the stairs gearing for someone to jump out at me. I opened the apartment door and stepped out. It looked like all that noise and commotion had brought some of my neighbors to their doors too.
I had just experienced my first earthquake!! Welcome to California!!! Happy Halloween!!!!
