A mild earthquake shook me awake at 3:10 a.m. I fell back asleep after twenty minutes. It is funny to think about my half-conscious mind trying to figure out what it was, eliminating other hypotheses like a bulldozer running through the yard.

My husband is from Los Angeles. I had never experienced the ripple effect of a mild earthquake before moving to the Midwest. One night, I woke up feeling that there was a train passing by the roof of our apartment. I turned around, half asleep, and I see my husband is also awake. I asked: "What's that?" He answer: "Nothing sweetie, don't worry. It's an earthquake. Go back to sleep." And I did.
