Today was my first earthquake experience. I was sitting on the couch, loading books into my new Kindle, when I felt the couch shake. I looked around, like, what the hay,. Nothing.. I looked up at the valance over the picture window and it was moving but there is an air conditioning vent there so it moves anyway. I felt the tremor about 15 seconds. I thought I was having one of my mother's dizzy spells, that I have never had before. After it was over, I put it out of my mind. Then Terry called from the base and asked if I had felt the earthquake. Really, an earthquake? good, cause I thought it was me.
Shortly after that my sister, in Michigan, called to see if I was ready for Irene? What? I hadn't seen any news today. Last I did see, she was going to maybe hit Florida. Not now. Now she's after all the south eastern coast.
That's enough please. We give up. Stop it.
