At about 5:24 AM we had an earth quake here in the Seattle area. I live about 60 miles north of seattle at the base of Mt Pilchuck and at about 5:24
AM my house began to shake from side to side and the bounce up and down.
The actual shaking quake lasted only about ten seconds but was enough to rattle the dishes in the cupboard and the bottles in the refrigerator.
The thing that I find interesting is that my dogs and the dogs in the area have been barking all night, this is not completely unusual as will live in
a very remote area with a lot of wildlife that the dogs will alert to from time to time,but within minutes after the quake stopped all the barking has
stopped as well.
The dogs were very restless tonight wanting to go outside and immediatly wanting back in, this is very unusual.
Just minutes before the quake the dogs came and sat directly in front of me and made eye contact as if they were waiting for a command, as they did
this I was thinking how strange and then the shakening began. The dogs did not take there eyes off of me until the shaking stopped.
I am quite sure they knew the quake was comming long before it hit.
Also as I mentioned we are rather remote and very, very quiet at night but tonight I kept hearing what sounded like the rumble of a large truck or jet
The news just said it was a 4.6 shallow quake and callers are telling there stories of strange behavior of pets inculding one caller saying that his
dogs had both jumped into his bed five minutes before the quake hit and the dogs refused to get off the bed.
Just thought some ATSers might find this interesting.
