For those of you on rural northern Nevada earthquake watch, there have been 28 earthquakes in the last 24 hours. It began with the 6 point rumbler at dawn yesterday and then a regular spattering of aftershocks anywhere between a 2 and a 4.6.

I shouldn't have eaten the whole thing.

I've only felt two of these because they are quite deep and I'm 30-40 miles away.

I don't want to feel any more. What I want to do is hunt down the "educational professional" at my child's school who has been warning all the children that an even larger earthquake would be taking place in the middle of the night while they slept.

You sent my nine year old kid home terrified you dumb twit. He thought his house was going to fall down around him while he was in his bed because of your daft prediction. Feeling his bed boogie against the wall yesterday morning, along with the deep rumbling noise, was enough to make him so scared he felt ill....and you thought it was your duty to add to that?

If you persist in your story today I'm heading to the school to have a calm and logical talk with the people who need to hear my complaint. Safety and disaster education is one thing...unfounded Miss Cleo style predictions are another.

I can't be the only one in Mama Bear mode this morning.


Grrrrrr....

  3. People are stupid. They needs signs stamped on their foreheads.

    Since they refuse to do that, I vote you go kick his/her ass. There would be profound satisfaction in that.

    I hope you get no more earthquakes, they are never fun.

  6. Ugh. Sometimes people are so stupid. Last year when Steve Irwin died, my Divas kindergarten teacher felt the need to tell them exactly how he died. She has not set foot in the ocean since.
    Nice, considering we live 5 minutes from the ocean!
