Earthquake!!!

Today while sitting on our cabin’s deck at 12:40 pm…. The deck swayed back and forth and rumbled for 30+ seconds. Really wild. Amos dog jumped out of his sleep, worried. I watched old growth trees sway like sticks. By the time I realized what was happening, it was ending. No injuries or deaths reported in BC. We have heard it was everything from a 7.4 to a 6.5 & the centre was 20 mins from us, out in the ocean. I had motion sickness for an hour after. Very humbling and very cool. I changed my afternoon plans of floating on an airmattress in the ocean, in the 30 degree heat, due to after shock possibilities. There have been no signs reported of Tsunamis.
