|The big news of the day that a rare earthquake hits Virginia.|

I called my Mom who was "pretty scared" and she totally lost her focus on going through her kitchen cupboards with the help of my youngest daughter. "We are just watching the news now instead of doing the work" she said. Then we got an email from our central office saying that they were closing down and sending us home "as soon as you can secure your office". So we got things put away and came home.
Having a small earthquake of 5.9 on the Richter scale really lets you know how vulnerable we are, because while things are shaking around you knew there wasn't a dog-on-thing we could do about it. And if the shaking got bad enough to bring the office down, you couldn't keep it from happening. Humility must be the natural response to nature's power.
