The Earth Moved Last Night

Was settling down last night with the Missus when she started to scratch her leg with her foot. I asked her, "Was that you?" figuring that she'd just rocked my world once again. She replied, "No, I thought it was the cat." But the cat was outside.

It appears that there was an 3.8 earthquake that rattled homes in North Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia but appeared to have caused little serious damage That's the second one I've ever felt since living in my house of the last five years.

Now, bring on Katrina! Hey, didn't they warn us earlier this year that we were likely to run out of names for tropical storms/hurricanes? Sounds like typical media hyperbole to me.
