    I awoke just after 3:30 AM Sunday morning, as my capiz shell lamp was shaking, dogs were barking. I did not panic as I have been in several Quakes, in my life, and this one did not seem very bad. No damage, and I probably slept through the first part of it. I estimated it was a 3-4 on the scale, but I was surprised to find it was a 5.8 on the scale at the epicenter…no worries…
