We interupt this Earthquake to bring you a Tornado Warning

Has anyone seen the movie 2012? I was thinking about it about 2pm dis afternoon. Here in Buffalo, New York. We usually see snow.

Like this type of snow.

Today. We felt a earthquake. Completely out of our comfort zone, I called my mother in law in Eden, NY. She felt it. Aaron called his dad in Derby, NY. He felt it.

Later we learn the earthquake is from Canada! 500 miles away. (The quake, not Canada.) C'mon! Nothing screams zombies and apocalyptic tragedies as something like this. This is horribly confusing. Here's a diagram.

Ok, I'm over-reacting here. I'm sorry.

But it was cool. No damage, no one died and certainly no zombies.

Yet.

We went out for dinner, everything as usual. Everyone is talking about it. I think one person had his windshield broken and someone's cheap Wal-mart pool fell apart.

Then we get a Tornado warning. Again, to refresh.. it's Buffalo, NY.


This isn't So. Cal or Arkansas. The worst we see is about 12 feet of snow and we dig ourselves out. No big deal.

And, it all brings me to this song.

  1. I'm from Iowa where we get feet of snow and tornadoes every other day....and moved to Southern California last September where we feel earthquakes...and that's pretty much it. SO BORING. I'd take the excitement of tornado warnings and blizzards over this mid 70's every day of the year business.

    But actually, as far as safety and my life goes, I'd rather have an earthquake. Tornadoes mean business!

  2. I love earthquakes! Ok not the kind like in Haiti or chili but the little ones that make the couch shake. They're fun. Now tornados those scare the crap out of me. I hope you guys stay safe!! The earth is doing some crazy stuff this year!

  3. Oh my word, I didn't know you live in Buffalo, NY! I am from Rochester, NY and most of my family and friends are there! I got phone calls all day and it's on everyone's facebook, it's all they're talking about but no one I know felt it!How bizarre :)

  4. I KNOW it would wear thin in about 1 day, but I would LOVE to live somewhere with snow like that. Maybe not the earthquakes (altho maybe just one would be fun for about 1 second?). I'll look foward to following your blog.

  5. Wow! I'm here in Brooklyn and heard about what was happening up there - but we've had our own tornado warning and drama today too. I don't know what's going on around here anymore.

    I saw the movie 2012 and while those visuals were amazing, I don't think..."it's the end of the world as we know it"...not just yet anyway. It's 2012 that I'm expecting something big to happen.

  7. I'd still be a little shaken. Glad no one was hurt.

  8. Earthquakes are scary, I think because there's absolutely no warning. I'm in So Cal and have lived here my whole life and still get scared everytime I feel one because I think it might be "the big one"...

    Glad everybody's was okay and nobody was hurt :)

  11. Seriously! I just moved from LA to CT to get away from earthquakes and fires and whatnot and what happens???? Freakin' tornado in the next town over. Definitely the end of the world. Happy 2012!
