Earthquake

The strongest earthquake ever recorded in Oklahoma occurred Saturday, November 5 about 11 pm.  I had just turned out the light when I heard what sounded like a large limb falling on the roof.  Then, I heard a scratching sound on the roof, as if the limb was sliding down.  Next was the sound of thunder.  About that time the bed started to sway.  Then, the rafters creaked as though a strong wind was blowing.  Finally, the mirrors in the headboard started rattling.  News reports say the quake lasted 30-45 seconds.  On Sunday I looked around the yard but did not find a limb.  However, the many twigs and leaves on the roof did slide toward the eves, leaving the upper half of the roof clean.
