I'm in Lawrence, KS. It's been quite a blur and a whirlwind of a thing going on. I've been to the laundrette, and, lo and behold, it was shuttered, but when I put my hands up to the glass on the door, it opened. Of COURSE it opened... >.< So, we went in.

I apologize for being remiss and missing the comment in a previous (waaay long ago, and I've been away too long) post about the earthquake just outside Craig. Yes. It MOVED. It ROCKED and ROLLED and shook both me and my husband completely out of bed. Now, granted, we're still in that Forest Service housing trailer just up from the beach, but trust me. The ground ROLLED.
