If you are on Twitter it is funny to see the quake filtered through the lens of your Twitter connections.
I am a music nerd and my friends tend to be other music nerds. One pianist in Ontario wrote: "I thought the notes on my Ravel score were moving around and then I realize it was a quake in Toronto." He must have been surprised to learn it was all the way down in Virginia!
A music fan in Virginia wrote that the whole opera house shook.
Then there are the laughs.
One political wag wrote: "What you felt just now was the country moving to the right." Seize the day! Good for him.
And a sportscaster in Chicago got in a good one, too. He wrote, all in capital letters: "WOLF BLITZER IS ON THE PHONE WITH THE EARTHQUAKE."
And now that my desk has stopped shaking, I guess I should get back to work.
