So, shortly before 9:30 PM last night I was sitting in the living room chatting with the Hobbit and the Kat when I felt my chair move slightly.
“Earthquake,” I said to the ladies, who looked down at me in surprise.
“What?” the Kat asked.
And then came the real deal.
A 5.7 down by the border, apparently.
It lasted a few moments, and after the shaking was done the ladies’ surprise turned to amazement.
“How did you know?” they both asked, looking at me with wonder and – dare I say it – a kind of awe.
“I felt the pre-shock,” I answered truthfully.
“Oh,” came their reply, and I was back to being the old guy in the chair again.
Which is too bad, for a man in his own house could use the occasional bit of wonder and awe.
