And the earth moved...

under our feet!

Yep, while I was at my critique meeting the other night, a minor earthquake rattled the region. We thought at first it was wind, but then the floor started to shake and we knew it was yet another of the small quakes we feel in this area every couple of years. During the one in April 2002, Sean was working on the 7th floor of a building and he really felt it sway.

As always, certain sectors of the media have been blowing it waaaaay out of proportion. Apparently some people were really frightened. Hmmm, now I'm thinking most people on the West Coast of the US would just laugh at them - what we experienced was definitely a small rumble. Nothing more and certainly not even remotely scary.

Historically, only two in this general area have caused any significant damage - one in Montreal during the 18th century and one on the border of Ontario and NY State in 1944.

Not much more to report - must get on with daily chores *sigh*. I did get some sleep this weekend - even had a nap yesterday afternoon. The kitties quite enjoyed the day - we had the fire on a lot of the time *g*.
