Midwest Earthquake

Recommended Posts

I saw this on CNN this morning and you know its funny, it was such big news since the midwest never gets them and I laughed and told my DH that if this had been in CA they would have said "oh there was another earthquake in CA, now onto other news"...but they do the same thing when there's a tornado in a place that doesn't usually have them or a hurricane in a place that doesn't have them. We never hear about all the earthquakes in the pacific and they have them all the time "ring of fire" anyone...okay I will stop babbling, I am a social studies teacher who used to teach Natural Disasters.

I love natural disasters! I'm not morbid or anything, I just think they are fascinating!

 

The local news is ridiculous! I mean a few bricks fell off a building, there has to have been some other event that took place yesterday. The Pope is here, there are troops in Iraq, the PA primary is coming up, etc. They are just finding people to interview! One lady was going on and on about how her cat woke her up! In case you can't tell, I'm not a fan of local news. LOL

I was up going to the bathroom for about the 5th time around the time it hit, but I didn't feel it. Maybe that's what woke me up that time, and not the baby pushing on my bladder!! I didn't know about it until I turned the TV on. Some of the kids in my class said they felt it.

It's actually funny. Working for an insurance company (in the department that sets the rates) I am WELL aware of the fault line down there. It's actually one of the biggest ones in the country. I think what a lot of people don't know, is that historically the fault will produce a few smaller earthquakes and then one huge one. Of course this was many many years ago that it used to happen this way, but as an insurance company we are really getting prepared for this.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
