I’m assuming everyone here survived The Great Virginia Earthquake of 2011! On one of the forums I’m on, a California fellow piped up and said “So, I hear you guys back east got a 5.9 quake. You know what we call that? An average Tuesday.”

Jokes aside, I know folks up and down the East coast are now living in terror that NJ will suddenly break off and float out into the Atlantic, so I thought I’d post something motivational. Here you go:

    Pat Robertson says that the crack in the Washington Monument is a symbolic gesture from the big man upstairs. Youtube has the details.

    I normally don’t recite something I hear on Facebook or in emails, but I really got a kick out of,
    “Seismologists have concurred that the quake originated from a new geological formation known as Bush’s Fault.”

    Change out Bush for Obama depending on if you’re a Nazi or a Commie.

    Well, between the Bush-Obama Fault and Hurripain Irene, Mother Nature is pissed and she’s coming for us.

    How was Irene down there. They hyped the hell out of it here, but it was nothing. It’s funny to see every news organization in the area filming the same sailboat that broke from it’s moorings.

    A co-worker from Taiwan just told me they get 3-4 typhoons per year, ‘if they’re lucky.’ funny.

    It was alittle windy. No rain. Missed SC completely, I think- at least where I’m at.

    I heard Michelle Bachman claims Irene and the Quake are God being mad at D.C. for not passing a balanced budget.

    Durham just got some 30-40s mph wind gusts and a little extra rain. The coast and Outer Banks got 100+ mph winds, storm surge and rain – NC Highway 12 has been washed out in several places.

    I’m always amazed at those who seem so familiar with God’s will….

    Glad you’re OK, guys. Though I bet for Chris the howling wind was far less than the indoor howling he’s been hearing for the past couple months 🙂

    In the last month we have survived unscathed through a brush fire in our neighborhood, an earth quake and a hurricane. Some people might interpret that as the big man sending a message, but we’ve been undamaged so far – so that message is: ‘you are awesome, keep doing what you’re doing.’ Hey, I could be a pundit too; it’s all about spin!

    Thankfully lil’ G has not been too colicy, so she only howls when hungry or on relatively rare occasions.
