Rockin' the PTO

Well, that was certainly fun, wasn't it?

I was just minding my own business a little before 2PM when the building started shaking, seriously shaking. I got under a door frame, many others just didn't know what to do. Many people stood at the end of the hall looking out the window. Then it was over, and everybody was looking at each other, laughing nervously, and letting the fact that we'd just been through an earthquake sink in.

We evacuated the building, staying outside for about an hour before the all-clear was given. I must admit, I stuck around outside for another 15 or 20 minutes, and only partly to let the crowds at the elevators die down. The Office gave everyone the option of taking admin leave and going home, but between the gridlocked traffic and the Metro running at 15 MPH system-wide, it seemed to make more sense to stay at work.

Anyway, I haven't had a day at the Office like that before.

Same time tomorrow? Naaa. Once was more than enough.
