East coast earthquake…

I was at a local greasy-spoon for lunch when Mrs. Crucis texted me to say that a 5.8 earthquake had hit near D.C. I mentioned it to my waitress, a thirtysomething woman.  She got a blank look on her face and asked if that was going to affect us here near KC.

I replied, “It’s near Washington, DC.”  Still a blank look.

Finally, I said, “No. We’ll be OK.”  That satisfied her.  Evidently the fact we’re over a thousand miles away was over her head.
