So there was an earthquake last Wednesday near Ottawa. My sister lives in Ottawa. She was visiting her sister in law and her kids. So when the quake occurred and Janie called, "Get your kids, there's an earthquake!" it must have been alarming and new to some of the younguns. Rhys, for instance, is only six. It was his first quake. My sister took her own baby and Rhys out while Janie collected the other kids.
Outside, some of the neighbours had gathered in front of their homes. Rhys was a bit worked up and warned some of the neighbours in a worried voice, "There's an EARTHQUAKE in our house!"
