Today, I learned that one should move outside, or to the nearest doorway during an earthquake. I had no idea. I also learned that earthquakes might sound like a giant unbalanced dryer shaking the entire house, or an evil alien invasion and they can most certainly happen on the east coast of the US. Who knew? Lastly, I learned that I don't think I could deal with this as a 'regular occurrence' without wearing adult diapers, and probably would not do well living on the west coast or in parts of the Pacific without having some sort of head trauma. I do, however, now understand why California has had no problems finding supporters to legalize marijuana.
Stay tuned for the next exciting installment of "Today I Learned" when I might have the exciting opportunity to tell you what new and amazing things I learn about hurricane preparedness from Irene's impending visit. Ha! And who said I wasn't an outdoorsy kind of person? Stay safe everyone!
