Earthquake Update

This morning, around 5:30 EDT, there was a 5.2 earthquake at the Wabash fault (a northern branch of the New Madrid).

My VBF woke to feel her house shaking and hear the window rattling, and she lives about five hours north of the epicenter.

My colleague Nancy, a former resident of Los Angeles, popped out of bed and headed for a door frame, to protect herself from falling objects. (The Fig and I learned the same technique while attending elementary school in the Bay Area.)

The Hairbanger called to make sure I was OK after the quake. I assured her I was.

I had slept through the whole thing.
