Yeah, we had an earthquake yesterday. Kind of scary, definitely unexpected. I even entered it in my fertility chart in the “notes” area because there’s a specific example in TCoYF where a woman misses her ovulation because of an earthquake. Funny that.
Since we’re all sharing them, my story: I had just sat down and cracked open Boneshaker to read for a bit while my simulation finished, when I noticed the floor quivering. Hmmm, that’s not right, I thought. So I got up and started to go see if anyone else felt it. Then, the whole building started shaking and rattling and I saw people fleeing my advisor’s office, so I figured, I’d better leave, too. We all got outside and noticed lots of other people outside, so someone checked a smart phone. Earthquake, cool.
And then we all went back inside and went about our days. Yeah, we’re none too impressed with day-to-day catastrophe. Maybe the hurricane this weekend will change that, but I doubt it.
