Earthquakes and Hurricanes, Oh My!
So where were you during the Great East Coast Earthquake of 2011? If you're from the west coast or other places that experience earthquakes regularly, I'm sure you are rolling your eyes at the reaction of us on the east coast. But, earthquakes are rare around here and this one was really unusual in length of time and rolling movements.
I've not seen my house sway back and forth before. The attic and roof boards sure protested with a lot of scary creaking. Looks like there was a little minor building damage around the region, but so far all is well. I am crossing "experience an earthquake" off my bucket list – it wasn't on my list, but I'm crossing it off anyways – that was plenty.
And now….oh my, here comes hurricane Irene. Heads up East Coast – last night the models had a direct hit at southern New Jersey, Philadelphia. This morning she's moved east and is looking as Cape Cod. So keep an eye out on her, she can't make up her mind.
What's next? Locust?
Stay safe out there.
