Of Quakers and Shakers

Postby N2yes » Sun Apr 21, 2002 12:42 am

<font color=red>This morning, at approximately 7 am or so, I managed to give myself a helluva charlie horse ( right calf ) as I stretched out on the waterbed. This in and of itself is certainly of no consequence, however, what happened next is. While I wrestled with this rather stimulating sensation ( ouch city ), the waterbed started moving and I instantly knew what was happening of course. Well, thinking this would be a moment or two only, I was shocked to see and feel the headboard start violently shaking and it didn't stop for almost 30 seconds. WOW!!!! Hey, I enjoy feeling the Earth move as much as the next person, but, here in New England, this was quite the rarity! I'm sure you western folk aren't exactly strangers to this phenomenon but, we here in the east tend to become a little wary of atypical phenomenon. Being accustomed to early morning peace, I found this action a little disconcerting but at no time was I ever actually scared, just alarmed. The waterbed, BTW, rippled with such intensity during this quake that I literally felt it move me to the corner and almost vibrated me right out of the bed. Lol, it was too wierd! Ed, I know you had to have felt this down in the Big Apple. Anybody else? </font id=red><img src=pix/icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

<font color=red>BTW, a 5.1 on the richter scale...a pretty big deal for this region. Epicenter figured to be approximately 17 miles south of Plattsburg, New York.</font id=red>

Way cool, N2. I love earthquakes. They really pump the adrenaline. I remember hiking up the Sierras many years back and waking up to a 6.3. We were above tree line, about 10,000 feet or so when that quake hit. Man, it was cool. Within minutes, dust was flying around all of the 12-14,000 foot peaks. Major rock slides.

Glad you could experience one safely. They are dangerous. I've been in several, including the San Francisco quake of 89 when the World Series was under way. That was a scary one of course.

WOW! (sound chaser -- I think N2's bed would be moving longer than 30 seconds if that were the case!)

The only earthquake I've experienced was one back in the 70's. I was standing in the bathroom combing my hair when all of a sudden I noticed the water in the toilet sloshing around and then I saw the curtains on the window swaying. I couldn't FEEL it! I had no idea what was going on! I thought about calling an exorcist -- this was soon after I had seen the movie "The Exorcist"! What a relief when I later heard that it was an earthquake! We have very few here.<img src=pix/icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

I would certainly HOPE it would last longer then 30 seconds for N2 if it weren't an earthquake!!!

Never had the experience of an earthquake, but have felt the earth move from time to time in my life! ;)

My father-in-law called tonight and said that my mother-in-law had just stepped on the scale to weigh herself yesterday morning when the shaking started. <img src=pix/jestera.gif border=0 align=middle>

Wow! Quite an experience, I do have the dubious distinction of having slept through an earthquake in a genuine english castle, part of which fell down. I doubt that it was anything like as strong as that one though.

<font color=red>Let's see...come to think of it...nah, it had to have been an earthquake 'cause I never felt my knees buckle even though the bed tried to! Plus, I didn't go to sleep after it happened!</font id=red><img src=pix/salook.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Believe me when I say that it couldn't happen to a nicer person. <img src=pix/icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

Wouldn't have been half as funny if it happened to my husband's mother-in-law, who's about half my mother-in-law's size ...

I should stop. It's gonna come back on me. Someday I'll probably have a daughter-in-law who was conceived when all of N2's ex co-workers were on vacation in Hades ... <img src=pix/icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

I am disappointed you didn't rush to the stereo and play your favorite Yes tune. You know, in case it was the last song you ever heard? <img src=pix/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

We don't get many quakes in Texas, but I saw 2 tornadoes last week...

<font color=red>Just in case an element of obscurity clouded the punch line in that last meager attempt at humour, add the name Lewinsky. That should brighten up things a bit. </font id=red><img src=pix/icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

You've been watching too much Letterman. How long has it been, and he's <i>still</i> making Monica jokes?
