My first instinct when I heard about the DC-VA-NYC Earthquake was to text my daughter who is away at college in the eastern part of NY State. The Gospel According to Twitter seemed to indicate that people from North Carolina to Boston were reporting tremors, so it seemed reasonable to check on her. My iPhone may have misinterpreted my intent:
She answers a lot of my texts with either “Wow” or “Sigh.” It must be a college thing.
I have a son as well, who lives in San Diego he texted me “What’s shaking?’ Oh Cali people. Laugh at our panic, but remember this if you ever get three inches of snow out there.
