Stop Plate Tectonics!

Okay, so I'm being a bit silly with the title.  I used to wear a sweat shirt printed with these words and it never failed to get people's attention, so I thought I'd try it here.

Today a 5.9 earthquake near Mineral, VA was felt up and down the East Coast.  So far, damage seems pretty minor, but people are very shaken up.  While quakes like this are common in the West, they are not usually associated with the Eastern United States.  If you are waiting to hear from loved ones, please be patient; if you are rattled by feeling the quake, relax, the after shocks are almost always less intense.

Stay safe, stay sane and respect your mother, Mother Earth that is, as she is still bigger than us all.
