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.
