Shake and Bake

If you can believe this, we actually had an earthquake last night. It’s like being back in LA. I was with the kids coming back from hockey, so we didn’t feel it, but R was a little shaken, no pun intended. She said she was in the house when she heard rumbling upstairs, almost as if there were animals running around. She was bummed. When we got home, it smelled of skunks, which is nothing new, but I wonder if the shaking disturbed them and they sprayed.

We were right about to have supper and were trying to figure out what might have happened when we decided to call our neighbors, the H’s, and they confirmed that it was in fact an earthquake. The epicenter was in Maine, but they said it was felt all way down by the Massachusetts border. Crazy.

I was thinking that aside from Irene, this area is reasonably safe from the big natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes, but I may have to change my tune.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to tim phillips photos for the pic.
