Shake It Up!

I didn’t feel it, as I was driving in to work, but Michigan had an earthquake today. I guess it happened close to 7pm and was a magnitude 3.2 earthquake. Some friends of mine downriver posted about this on Facebook.

I remember being at my grandma’s house one summer and feeling the ground shake a little. We were on the couch watching TV. Later that day, it was all over the news that there was an earthquake.

In 2015 we had a small earthquake here. Not many people felt it. It was almost a joke. People were posting this picture with the caption “We will rebuild” on it!

I realize that earthquakes can be serious and deadly, and I am lucky that I’ve never actually been through a bad one. I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like. Every time I hear about an earthquake, I am always reminded of the scene below from Sanford and Son. Fred’s response after it is all over always cracks me up.

The earthquake begins about 48 seconds into the clip. Fred’s reaction at 1:39

Wildfires, Covid-19, Murder Hornets, Earthquakes …. one can only imagine what 2020 has in store for the remainder of the year….
