When the earth shakes

April 18, 2008 at 5:45 PM

Here I am, a visitor from Los Angeles, enjoying the peace and quiet of my sister's home, nestled in the rolling hills of Northern Kentucky, by Cincinnati.

All week long, I've been taking credit for the beautiful spring weather: "I brought you some California sunshine!" I informed my five-month-old baby niece with a smile.

This morning, as I was rolling over in bed, I awakened with a start. For some inexplicable reason, the windows were rattling softly, but insistently. Then, my bed shook, then the entire house shook!

"Rolling hills," indeed.

"You know," I said, as I held my sister's little girl later this morning, "Nobody can control Mother Nature!"

Today's also the anniversary of the 1906 great San Francisco earthquake. Strange, huh? That's how it goes around here.

Geez Laurie, you were just s'posed to give 'em California sunshine. You were not supposed to give them California geology as well. I think you should apologise to them.

My Aged P's home in Louisville shook this morning. I called to check up. My Dad missed all the excitement though, as he was on the treadmill, and didn't feel it.

That is what is so awesome about Kentucky:
Earthquakes, tornadoes, plus floods. AND the grass is blue...

I knew you were in a position of power, but you even brought your sunny earthquake up to Chicago.

Now that's a tremelo!!!
