earthquake.

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

I was going to update my blog earlier tonight but my old laptop locked up about that time so I shut it down and fell asleep!  Not for long… a 5.6 earthquake woke me up and shook us for a good minute! I do not like earthquakes and wish they would stop showing up in Oklahoma.  I always thought every state/geographical area has some calamity to deal with.  Our weather parasite has always been tornados, snowstorms/blizzards/ice storms, with the occasional wildfire thrown in.  Earthquakes are for the edges not the middle right?  Apparently they are now a part of our lives as well.  I hear a lot of explanations for these quakes.  Some people claim that the current drilling is causing the fault lines to shift.  Sounds reasonable.  Many (church going God fearing) people believe that it is a fulfillment of bible prophecy.

Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

 

I think Oklahoma would qualify as a diverse place for an earthquake and assume a lot of people spent that minute of shaking praying to God and then the next minute checking facebook to see if everyone felt it too.  I really hope we are finished shaking for the night and can enjoy the luxury of an extra hour thanks to good old daylight savings time!

I haven’t blogged about my trip to Seattle.  I will.  ps it was wonderful.

Amanda is here for the night … we went to the mall today and found a formal for her banquet at school.  We raced home and I made this for Bailey (because boys don’t typically like flowers and tonight was the closing night to his play). They won first in the state of Oklahoma for this one act play “Dead Man Walking.”  They really did a wonderful job!

He actually liked it more than I thought he would!

That’s it for tonight… it’s midnight (or 11 p.m.) and I have a class to teach in the morning!  I’ll be back.

p.s. A friend messaged me today notifying me that all my pics were gone.  The designer of my blog has all the pics on her photobucket account so I’m not sure what’s going on but hopefully it will all be back to normal soon and in the meantime I just put this old template up so it wasn’t a bunch of words saying image not found.
