    I was just watching the news, thinking about how when I check the forum, somebody will have already posted about the earthquake. I wish I'd felt it. I've only been through one small (5.1) earthquake and I was inside at the time. The cool thing was, right before the quake, my cousin's dog got all nervous and jumpy ( [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img] WEIRD [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] ).

    I heard a coworker of ours was home at the time and just before the quake started, her dog, who was laying beside her, jumped up and started barking and going crazy at the front door. Isn't that wierd? They can sense things like that before it happens. Human's sensory abilities are pretty poor compared to many other animals.

    Great! I have images of you being swallowed whole down some flaming crack in the earth and you are egging the Gods on. Well, what can I expect from a girl that loves tornado's!!!
    Here in Upstate NY the earth behaves itself. All you folk living in quake zones are a brave lot, I think the event would be pretty scary.

    Between this and Isabel I'm starting to think we somehow pissed someone off... (And the indicators for winter don't look good... depending on your perspective [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] ).

    Yay, Suzanne experienced her first earthquake, pretty freaky huh? Its scary when it first starts, you don't know how long it will last and if the shock will get bigger or just remain the same.

    I live just miles from the New Madrid Fault line. This is the area in 1812 there was three 8.0+ scale earthquakes. The ground around here is still pretty active, but alas I haven't been able to feel one, always asleep when they hit. The largest on I think recently was a 4-6 on the richter scale, and it damaged some buildings in some cities to the south of us. They keep saying we are due for another 'big one', but they keep changing the likely hood from less then 100 years to 200 years.
