Believe your eyes?

Earthquake coverage is in saturation mode on CNN. It seems there is much to be thankful about. I remember asking my mother years ago if we ever had earthquakes here. She said we don't. I took that as a fundamental truth for years. I am sure she thought it was.

A few years ago, when I was sitting in the dining room and staring vacantly at a glass of water, (trying to wake up) the water rippled. It just shivered. It was as if someone had vibrated the table, but no one had.

Next morning, the newspaper said we had felt the faint effects of a 'quake. I felt nothing. But I saw it.

Close enough . . .

Talk about your "quakes in diverse places" I'd still druther have a hurricane than have the ground under my feet shaking side to side. Or, watching the drink in my glass shosh up and down! I have read about North Central Fla experiencing slight tremors some years back. Haven't had anything like that happen personally, tho.

Not sure which one would be easier for me. Hurricane Andrew. Na, prefer rain, wind, and sun.
