You tell em 'P'.  I would like to see how our friends in CA would deal with a major hurricane.  My hunch is that many would head to the beach to check out that 'bitchin surf' only to get swallowed up and swept out to sea.   

Actually all it takes is coming to the South in summer. Friends from the West visit and just go on and on about "God it's hot! It's so humid I can't breathe! I'm sweating! This is messing up my hair!  Is that pollen in the air? I have allergies!"

Earthquake, my ass.

I'm guessing that Rush Limbaugh rolled over in bed causing, no doubt, tens millions of dollars worth of improvements to the smaller regional centres of VA.

Earthquake update:

The Weather Channel is reporting that the quake was caused by a previously unknown fault running below DC. It is now being called Obama's Fault, though Obama will say it is really Bush's fault.

Another theory is that what we thought was an earthquake was actually the effects of a 14.6 trillion dollar check bouncing in Washington.

East coast quakes are different than west coast ones -- effect a much larger area and aren't far from the surface (1/2 mile). They felt this one in London, Ontario.  Try reading the news.

Yes, I know about the geology of the East Coast. I also know that there are no mountain ranges to inhibit the shock waves from a temblor and that they can be felt long distances.

But, a 5.9 is a 5.9.

If it had been a 7.8, the Washington Monument would probably be a pile of rubble and many people may have died, not necessarily because of the intensity, but because much of the East Coast construction is not made to withstand earthquakes.

I am glad it was a minor quake.

I hope you all fare as well with Irene.

HUGS,

Mark
