I felt the earth move

I was sitting in a cafe today. Feeling happy because they had soya milk and i was drinking my first cup of tea in 2 months. The table started to shake and I wondered why someone was shaking the table so hard, and then it built up and felt like there was a train hurtling through the ground right under my feet. I didn't know what was going on. It was very strange. Then some people (North Americans) started wooping and cheering saying it was an earthquake. Not sure why they were so happy. I suppose they didn't think a really big earthquake would happen when they'd paid to come on holiday. Or maybe it was just because they are used to tremors. And it was quite exhilirating. But i was shaking at the same time! and sort of waiting for the ground to start splitting open........It was the strangest thing. Like the earth growling, reminding us all that there's bigger things at work here.
So it's been a good few hours and there hasn't been anymore. Apparently it's perfectly normal at this time of year, because the rainy season is ending and the summer is here.
I think it will be on my mind, for a while though.........
