My first earthquake

Well it finally happened -I went through my first earthquake. We were sitting in the office not really doing much besides counting down the last few minutes before I headed home for the evening when a loud shake happened. The first thing I noticed before we jolted really hard was the loud noise that sounded like a heavy truck engine. Then I actually noticed the room was shaking. A few seconds later on the radio, and note everyone in my office acted like nothing was happening- they thought the earthquake was so small- we heard the quake was very minimal maybe a 2?? Being sick and already out of it, it is easy to say I freaked out just a little bit. A note to self- I still prefer a tornado or hurricane over an earthquake- those can be predicted!
