Something happened today that doesn’t happen all that often. We had an earthquake!
When it happened, Mom was downstairs playing the piano. I activated my warning alert, but she didn’t respond to the possibility that our world was about to crumble around us.
Thank God someone around here (i.e. me) knows what to do in an emergency. First, I checked the smoke/carbon monoxide/explosive gas detector.
It was fine. Then, I went into high-alert mode for all the post-apocalyptic renegades who were sure to try to get all our bacon.
I re-activated my warning alert whenever a truck or motorcycle came within a mile of our house, because that’s the usual mode of transportation for renegades.
This was exhausting.
Now I hear that we’re supposed to get thunderstorms tonight. Dad is right, 2012 is fast approaching.
Stay safe, everyone. I love you!
