When was the last time North Carolina even felt an earthquake? What is the probability it will ever happen?
Hurricanes and Tornado drills, yes, but an earthquake drill in North Carolina seems like a waste of time.

And it was felt here too! I was in my garage in KH and I felt a slow shaking. I looked at my shelves where I keep some oil and other liquids and they were swaying back and forth. Just a few minutes later it was on the TV.

I knew you would somehow be related to the earthquake story. It doesn't surprise me though as you act as though you know every thing that goes on in NE North Carolina.

Hell, you were even mad when Bob didn't send you a personal note so you could inform everyone else about his situation.

Did you ever petition the family for a copy of that note yet?
