Earthquake in Chicago?
The nice thing about living in Chicago (or so I thought) is that although we get lots of snow, we don't have to worry about earthquakes.
Californians, on the other hand, have to worry about earthquakes, but not about snow.
However, it seems that here in Chicago, we now have to worry about both snow and earthquakes - and on the same day!
I slept through this 3.8 magnitude tremor, but who knows if another one will hit or not?
We here in Chicago know how to live through the snow - as most schools remained open today, unlike East Coast schools. However, no one here knows what to do in an earthquake. It's as if Hashem is saying, "You think you're so tough? OK, try this out for size!" Yes, it was "only" magnitude 3.8, and Californians are laughing "Ha! We get 25 of those a day!" For Chicago, though, it's another part of the global fear engulfing the world.
