Earthquake in LA

Matt just called from work to tell me that there was an earthquake in LA. He felt it for several seconds. Little ol' me was washing the dishes at home, totally oblivious. How did I miss it? Such a bummer. I love natural disasters...

Oh, thank you! I can finally come out of the closet, say in in public: Hi, my name is Linden, and I love natural disasters.

You'll love NASA's Natural Hazards site. Great satellite pictures from all over the world. They call it "hazards," but you and I both know the right word is "disasters."

Linden! That's awesome. I think it's because Disasters are just big, outsized cases of Weather. I read this once:

"Everyone begins as a child by liking Weather. You learn the art of disliking it is you grown up. Noticed it on a snowy day? The grown-ups are all going about with long faces, but look at the children - and the dogs? They know what snow's made for."

@mrs. rangoon: You are so right. The Mildrens don't seem so excited about them, but I really want to feel an earthquake someday.

@matt kirkland: Love the quote! Guess I never learned that "art." Thankfully!
