I SURVIVED THE EAST COAST EARTHQUAKE

My shaky readers,

I’m sure you populate most of the world, and beyond, but locally I thought I’d inform you that here in West Chester, PA we just felt an earthquake.

Having lived in California for seven years, I knew what they felt like, but did not expect one here. In fact, I was waiting to hear the sound of sirens responding to some explosion.
But those who know me also know I’m a weather junkie. I happened to be tuned to the weather channel when our house began to shake. Also, I was looking out our front window at the birdfeeder which was swaying to and fro. The shaking began about 1:54PM and lasted about ten seconds.

What I found extremely interesting is that soon after the shaking ceased I received a phone call from a friend that had read my novel, New Moon Rising, which involves a great deal of geological activity. Could there be a sequel?

I also want to report that my study experienced earthquake damage, well, sort of. My study is stacked with books. A flea fart could bring down a pile of literature. I found a stack of books half tipped over. I’ll wait until my wife comes home and then restack the ten or so books. I will not contact our insurance company.

Waiting for aftershocks,
Walt

    I was wondering if you had any aftershocks yet…as you know here in SoCal earthquakes happen daily someplace in the state so they rarely make the news unless it’s a slow newsday.

      Hello my friend,
      There was one aftershock shortly after the ‘east coast big one’ that was to small to be felt by us.
      Having lived in LA for seven years, I know those in California would have had a laugh at the response here. It was just that most had never experienced an earthquake before. People came pouring out of buildings, a big no no.
      I’ve restacked the books in my study and life is back to normal.
      Take care,
      Walt

    Loved Emo’s Sojourn, by the way. It was my favourite
