Why is my screen shaking?

Most days, there is no reason to watch comedy on TV. All I have to do is be myself. Just today, I put a new plugin extension (is that redundant?) in Firefox that I thought would be pretty helpful since we live in an area where we have earthquakes. It’s called eQuakeAlert!! and it resides down at the bottom of the screen. What I didn’t know about it was that it has some ‘other’ features. Not only does it show me the latest quake information such as location, magnitude and does it every five minutes when there are quakes, but it also has a “shake” feature that I wasn’t aware of. This is where the humor comes in…

1964 quake in Alaska

As I was looking at a web page a couple hours ago, and trying to scroll down the page, all of a sudden the page was like vibrating before my eyes.:roll: I thought I was just a crappy scroller, but it was the plugin telling me there was an earthquake just posted to the USGS feed! Not only that, but the quake was pretty close….like about 20 miles away from me, over on the Olympic Peninsula I don’t know why I didn’t feel it in real time, but for once, I didn’t.

The funny part of this was too, that just this evening as we were discussing the day’s events, I said to my husband that there had been quite a few quakes today, and named the locations. Then, I told him, “Don’t be surprised if we don’t have one here!”. Boy, am I good, or what? What can I say? I pick up on these things.
