Shake, Rattle, & Roll

Weather in Indiana is never predicable.  For the kids first day of school in October, they were greeted with tornadoes.  We had snow before Thanksgiving.  Ice which closed school the last day of the 2010 school year.

Still not to be topped, this morning greeted us with an earthquake, http://www.indystar.com/article/20101230/LOCAL/101230007/4-2-magnitude-earthquake-hits-north-central-Indiana?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|IndyStar.com.  I was serving breakfast and there was a sound jolt and then a short shaking in the house.  Nothing fell, even in the china cabinet.  The kids slept through everything and LB didn't believe DH when we told him.  He had to confirm it with our guest and the internet.  Talk about a child of the 21st century.

This still won't encourage me to live on the West coast.   Our earthquakes won't have us floating off into the Pacific.  Besides I still don't like their other seasons - fire, drought, and mud slide.

Wonder what we'll enjoy from Mother Nature next year...

It seems like Indiana knows how to welcome a person home...

Here in Idaho, we don't really have mudslides. Just fires and drought. And they nearly always go hand in hand. Indiana is better if you don't care to lose sleep most of the summer...
