OK … the title is overstating it a bit, but as you may know by now, today we had the largest earthquake in this area since the Giles County quake of 1897. And I didn’t even know it.
I was working away in the paint booth when the metal walls of the booth started banging and rattling. Because I didn’t feel anything, at the time I thought it was Jordan, one of the employees, horsing around and pounding on the booth. But no, it was Terra firma that at the time wasn’t as firma as you would think. It wasn’t until later, after emerging from the booth, that I found that Burlington (NC) had taken a good shaking.
Darn it. I always miss the good stuff.
