The Toy

This is a picture of the Thrive.  I didn't take this one.  It is from Wiki Commons.  I was lazy.

We had an earth quake today.  By we I mean the whole North East Coast from the Carolinas to Canada!  I missed it.  I didn't notice a thing.  As a kid I lived in California.  In school we did earthquake drills and I remember experiencing earthquakes.  I now live in New England and I miss the largest quake in this area.  The  center of the quake was in Virginia.  That is a long way away but because of the geology of the North East it was felt up here, but not by me.  Oh, well!  I don't think there was any damage locally.  There was some closer to the center and lots of people in big buildings evacuated in places like N.Y. City and Washington, D.C.
Next Disaster - Hurricane Irene, maybe.  We'll have to see about this one.  It may possibly be in the North East by the weekend and I am now at the Rhode Island shore with my father.  Things could get interesting.
Below is one of the possible paths of the hurricane.

Things could and probably will change.  Keep steady, keep dry, keep safe!

Love, Shel
