Our Easter eggs ended up scrambled today, as a 7.2 earthquake (upgraded from the original 6.9 reports) centered in Baja California sloshed the water smack out of our swimming pool.
While Tom and I stood in a door jamb with Laura, I had the presence of mind (don’t say it) to run back for my iPhone boyfriend because, darn it, I wanted to be the first one to tweet the news. I’m pretty sure that I was first because the ground was still shaking while I was tweeting.
Within the hour, Laura had developed an earthquake detection device. She installed it on my desk. Also, she charged me $3 for it.
In summary, the earthquake caused $6 in damages at our house.
