EARTHQUAKE!!!

Oh, Alaska, how I love you. Even when you shake my house and kind of scare the crap out of me. We had a 4.92 magnitude earthquake at 1:24 today. The epicenter was only 13 miles WSW of Anchorage, so I felt it pretty strongly... (All of the earthquake info came from the Alaska Earthquake Information Center)

I realize that earthquakes can be an extremely devastating natural disaster. But, as far as natural disasters go, I much prefer and earthquake to a hurricane, tornado, or flood. Sure, those can be more predictable, but man... water is SO damaging. I can not believe how much damage water can do. So, I'll take a little earth shaking over that any day!

That's really all I had.... I just hadn't felt a big earthquake in a while... I did have another awesome mail day, but I will talk about that later after I have time to play with everything and take pictures!

When we had a tornado warning here last week everyone in the office thought I was insane for saying I much prefer earthquakes. I guess it's all about where you've lived, or in my case, where you grew up. I know it's odd to say, but sometimes I miss earthquakes, you get used to them living in AK :)
