4.3 Earthquake in NoCal and Joke

2 07 2007

True story that just happened:

A friend in Northern California reports feeling an earthquake that was centered in Aromas, CA and measured 4.3. She describes it as “quite a bit of a jolt and then tapered into some shuddering waves.”

She then instant-messaged her partner who was running errands in town at the time. When she heard he had been in the bank at the time of the earthquake she couldn’t help herself and asked, “Did you lose your balance?”

And this is why truth is often stranger than fiction, especially where my friends are concerned. And why the most scintillating geology news is here! LOL!
