Earthquake!

I was sitting at my laptop when suddenly everything started to shake. There's the strong sense of helplessness -- one's life out of control -- if just for a few seconds.

I ran to the doorway and waited -- there were no aftershocks.

Seconds later, the neighborhood erupted in a clanging sound as residents began banging pots and pans -- as a way to let the gods know, or to remind them, that humans are on Earth and the gods should have mercy.

The quake felt like a five, but apparently, officially, it was a 4.8.
