Sleeping through an Earthquake

This afternoon, Vinson experienced a very unique type of exposure - rumblings from today's earthquake!

We had just returned from a walk outside and Vinson went to sleep on the floor in front of my desk. While working, I noticed my computer monitor began to shake ever so slightly, but clearly. My first thought was the construction machinery that had been working outside, but when I looked, they were not running any machinery. My second thought was that Vinson may somehow be bumping the desk. That too proved false.

Twenty minutes later, my coworker asked if I heard about the earthquake... and then it all made sense.

Vinson wasn't troubled in the least - I guess being used to so many other sounds, he never got up to give the earthquake a second thought!

  1. Well done Vinson, what a star! Coming from a place with no earthquakes to speak of, we doubt we'd have handled one as well as you!
