Earthquake in Italy

Good Morning everyone! I don't know if you've seen/heard/read the news yet, but Italy was hit with an earthquake earlier this morning. The story is on but I first found out from my roommates, who have class earlier than I do on Mondays.

I was still in bed when I heard them talking about something that happened last night--something that scared Ro so much she couldn't sleep. Apparently she felt the earthquake, just little tremors. The rest of us slept right through it.

Anyways, just wanted to let you know everything is okay here--my study abroad advisor emailed this morning to check up on us so I figured I should let others know as well, in case you saw the news already!


  1. Hi Rachel,

    Thanks for your post. I heard the news on NPR when I woke up this morning and thought right away of you. I'm glad you and your friends are safe and sound. This blog has been a great way to re-live my trip to Rome! Thanks for your dedication to it and writing generally.


  2. Grandma K called, Mrs. Heckel called - dad had already read this so he knew you were okay. Thanks for the blog - stay safe.

  3. Hey there Rachel. I just want you to kno that you re in my prayers- especially after the earthquake. I appreciate your passion and love of writing and music and travel. I must be honest that I am living vicariously through you. I intended to travel more and write more, then life in all its wonderous annoyance got in the way. Such is life, eh?
