"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

I Feel the Earth Move
So um yeah, that was my first earthquake - interesting.
I happened to be in the D.C. area at the time - I thought at first it was one of the Metro trains going by, but then realized that no it was the whole place, right about the time several of the other cops there all had the same moment of "Ummm that's an earthquake."
Fortunately all the family & friends safe and sound. Not sure how you left coast people deal with them all the time.
Oh - and we're expecting a hurricane this weekend. Any other natural disasters I need to pack a bag for?
