Hey Farmg—wait, did you feel that?!
No? It was an aftershock.
An aftershock to a pretty big earthquake we had in Alaska a few weeks ago. You might have heard about it on the news? 7.0 with the epicenter about forty miles from here
To put it mildly: it was terrifying and awful and discombobulating. After lots of reading and discussing and studying, I can imagine being in a bigger one and I hope it is something you or I or anyone never has to experience. We are finally feeling pretty recovered after a few days of adrenaline hangovers, a week of high stress and another week of trying to return to normalcy. I questioned a few times if the lingering anxiety would ever fade, but with time and less frequent aftershocks it has subsided.
