Well, that was different.


We had an earthquake this morning.

I actualy felt it - what, you thought I was sleeping at 5:30 in the morning! Ho ho ho, surely you jest! - when the room started shaking and the handles on our dresser rattled. I just sat there thinking, "was that an earthquake?" It turns out it was. It was a 5.4 so that's something; enough that people could feel it but there were only, like, 2 buildings damaged across the entire Midwest.

Huh. I wonder what's next, an alien invasion? Just as long as it doesn't wake me up.

Felt it. My first thought was that the New Madrid had let go and leveled Memphis, but it turns out it was a little one in Illinois. Bizarre.

I think that when the next big one hits the New Madrid fault, it will be pretty unmistakeable, even in Indiana. And when it happens, it will all be FEMA's fault.

Wow, a Wikipedia-based haiku. Glad to see you are putting that super-expensive education to ggod use.

I felt the aftershock too. Matt and the kids remained blissfully unaware of both.

At least I didn't feel it.... but I have always wanted to see the damage .... well, maybe not.




grone:if you say it like it's spelled, it's a real word.
