Earthquake in DE

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

I was just upstairs in my office at the College, talking with an instructor, and suddenly he starts moving back and forth!  The hitch was that so was I…  First real earthquake I’ve ever experienced.

Apparently it had a wide effect radius.  A search-engine search (moahaha, take that, Google) will likely reveal information on the epicenter, &tc.  I called my wife and she simultaneously was calling me.  My instructions?  Put the baby in the tub and you lay down next to it!  There were still tremors at home (10 miles away) after they had subsided, here [future Earth Science and wave propagation lesson, that].

Hopefully we can avoid aftershocks…

Double Friday?

You know you love your job when you wish TOMORROW was Friday when TODAY is already Friday.  ;0)
