First Lions, Now Earthquakes

Something woke me up early pre-dawn, today. A weird sensation that, half-asleep and groggy, I could not figure and a strange rhythmic sound like a playing card between the spokes of a bicycle but much louder and more resonant. It turns out it was a 5.2 magnitude earthquake.

I think these may be signs. Do we dare further renounce the Obamessiah He-Who-Tethers-Catastrophes-Using-A-Snake-For-A-Rope-From-Whose-Navel-Springs-The-Lotus?

Lions and earthquakes are bad signs. How far away was the earthquake?

The epicenter was about 260 miles south.

That's a long way off for you to feel it, isn't it? I don't know anything about earthquakes, obviously, but that seems like a long way off to feel an earthquake of that magnitude - which just proves how powerful they are.

My daughter says that earthquakes in America are not like earthquakes in California. In California they knock down houses. In America they just shake them.

She's probably right. I especially like that she realizes California is different than America.

But now the reports are saying an even bigger earthquake may hit the Midwest. Remember last month when they said California was due for a big earthquake. I think their projections were off by a couple of thousand miles. It reminds me of Maxwell Smart's "Missed it by that much ..."

Not to make light of your situation, of course, but sometimes you just have to laugh because it doesn't help to worry.
