Yes, it takes an earthquake to get me to blog again...
Wednesday, August 24, 2011
I was visiting a relative in a nursing home this afternoon and just as I was getting ready to leave, I felt a little vibration in my chair and thought that maybe it was due to work going on in the building and then it increased to outright shaking back and forth. That lasted a few minutes and then stopped. I said, thinking that I was kidding, "maybe we're having an earthquake".
After it was over, I'd waited a few more minutes, to take the elevator. It was only afterward that I found out that I was right!
It was very weird from my East Coast point of view.
Brooklyn, while at the center of the universe was not at the epicenter of this quake; the whole thing only lasted a few minutes and wasn't huge (5.8 or 5.9, depending upon which report you heard or read), but it was quite enough for me. Yeah, I hear you snickering out there, Californians!
My plan for my reentry into blogdom was going to be a "catch-up" on what's been going on between blogs and a description of my trip to Philadelphia to visit my son and daughter-in-law,but this was much more dramatic!
