Earthquake Story Overload
This type of event happens in California almost every year. The earthquake in Japan was 60,000 times as powerful. Folks let's have some perspective on the significance of this. The rest of the country must get tired of hearing about our winter storms and other events like this earthquake that get covered like major events just because they happen in the media centers of New York and DC. Frankly the earthquake ride at Universal Studios was a whole lot more interesting.
Let's take it for what it was----a great excuse to go home early on one of the nicest days that we have had around here in a long time. Was this Mother Nature's way of saying it was too nice a day to stay cooped up in an office building?
Thanks to the Swim Run Write Blog I learned that the earthquake already has a Wikipedia page. No wonder encyclopedias are dead.
