We just had a cute little earthquake. In freakin' BALTIMORE.
It was a 5.8 quake, centered in or near Richmond, VA. Cell phone service has been knocked out. CNN is going nuts
. C'mon, guys -- when a comparable quake hit Big Bear, CA, I got up on a dining room chair and pretended to surf. The Northridge quake: Now that
was a thing
. I was near the epicenter.
Still, I can understand why nerves are rattled. The structures out here simply aren't built for that kind of event. Personally, I suspect that someone possessing advanced Tesla weaponry read my recent piece titled "Homesick" and decided to give me a taste of California.
Bella slept through it. Aren't dogs supposed to sense these things?
