According to this article at CNN, there is a 99 percent chance that an earthquake of 6.7 or larger will happen in California in the next 30 years. Because I wasn't already feeling fearful, what with this morning's seismic shifts and that woman getting stabbed near my office building (okay so that's not a natural disaster but that's just adding onto the mess). I mean the next 30 years! 99% chance! That is a guarantee. I mean... that could be tomorrow. Or next month. Or if I am lucky, five years from now when I am back on the East Coast and I can thank the powers that be that I'm out of California, aka Disaster Zone Central.
Also, there is some chance that this morning's quake could be a precusor to another one. Okay so it's only a 5% chance, but STILL. I am totally freaked out by this whole thing. And I feel like Lucille 2 in Arrested Development--I'm suffering some serious vertigo. Honestly! It's like that feeling after you've been sailing and you get on to dry land but you still feel like you're in the boat. I still feel like I am in the boat. I want to get off the boat.
Or a sedative. I'm sure that would work too.
