Doing well in Chile

We have electricity, phones, internet, but limited gas as of today. The earthquake was sure a jolt - first my bed started to jiggle a little and I thought - what are the people next door doing? Then the whole room started to shake hard. I started for the door and gave up and sat against the wall until the shaking ended. The lights went out and we stumbled into the dark streets. The whole city was up and driving around or walking. Rumors were rampant.

Things are quickly returning to normal though. Hopefully we will fly out on time.

Glad you're alive.

Me too. There was a moment when the shaking was the worst and the building was making a lot of noise that I thought this might be the end and I wasn´t ready to go.

I am about 90 km from the epicenter. We were pretty shaken up. Literally.
