Rumble, rumble (or so they tell me)

I’m in Winston-Salem, NC this week and next. I’m working on the Hibernate materials this evening with the NLCS game on in the background (top of the 8th, St. Louis leading the Mets 4 — 2). Every so often the TV beeps at me as the local station begins a slow crawler along the bottom.
It seems we had a massive earthquake here early this morning. It measured a whole 2.4 on the Richter scale. Woo. We’ve even had a couple of major aftershocks this evening, measuring 2.1 and 1.4.
Who knows? Maybe if I’d been watching a pot of still water at the time I might have seen it vibrate. Or not. Good thing the TV keeps reminding me about it, though.
