This evening at 6:39PM central Virginia experienced a 3.2 earthquake. Mild in comparison to the 5.8 quake that hit last August, but still a subtle reminder that we are not the ones in charge.
And Twitter moves almost as fast.
What was really interesting about this event was how fast I got confirmation that it was indeed an earthquake. I had just sat down in a chair and could both hear and feel the rumble. About the same time my wife called down the stairs, "Do you feel that?" and I answered in the affirmative "Yes", a Twitter alert popped up on my laptop from a friend exclaiming "Aftershock!" I don't think the rumbling had even stopped.
I think God is reminding DC that Obama is not Jesus.ReplyDelete
I fear He will need to speak a little louder.Delete
The shake didn't make it up into the WV mountains. Which I'm OK with. One was enough.ReplyDelete
My undergrad degree is in geology, so I find it all a bit exciting. :-)Delete
(From a science standpoint. Can do without the death and destruction the quakes cause.)
@David - So was mine, but I preferred the thoroughly dead and unmoving world of paleontology.Delete
