I Should Have Keep My Butt In Cali - Earthquake Hits Indiana

It's one thing to have to put up with snow, tornados, and flooding, but if the midwest is going to start getting earthquakes also, I'm going to have to jet. I'm kinda of use to earthquakes being from California, but my dog was like WTF? I never seen a dog's eyes open so wide!

Update! 11:15am - We just had a little aftershock. Lawd! I'm ready leave!

The worst earthquake ever to hit this country was in the Midwest. The New Madrid, MO earthquakes of 1812-13 were so bad that the Mississippi ran backwards. It was felt as far away as Boston and we have stone formations here in North Alabama that were cracked because of it.

When you keep in mind that the Gulf of Mexico once reached all the way to Cape Girardeau MO, and all that land is basically mud, and not bedrock, you can understand just how bad an earthquake there can be.

Somehow I slept through the earthquake this morning, but was awakened five minutes later by my cat meowing at the bedroom door. I also missed the 11:00 a.m. aftershock, though everyone else in the office was buzzing about it. I think I am earthquake intolerant or something.

Now, the tornadoes. I'll never get used to those!

Tell the dog I'm sorry I frightened him. We had a earthquake here a few years ago, and it took us days to get the cat from under the bed. Poor thing was scared out of her mind. She looked skittish for weeks afterwards.

Professor Tracey,

I'm so glad that you're okay!!! I lost my cell phone yesterday, or I would have called you already. April 23, 2008 at 12:17 PM  

I grew up in the Midwest and I never imagined that we would see people leaving Indiana because of too many earthquakes!

As Oprah would say, "wowie kazowie!"
