Seismic Sleep

24 Aug

Naps Happen is back up and running after yesterday’s terrible quake.  I’m sure you have all been on the edge of your seats, wondering if we folks near the epicenter are doing okay.  Thanks for your concerned tweets!

We’re digging out here.

William ran for the doorframe, but he collapsed from exhaustion in the entryway (too much exertion) and was promptly buried in a pile of blankets and couch cushions.

ClOSE to the doorframe. Not in it.

Across the house, Cormac fell victim to the collapsing contents of our basket of unfiled bills and coupons.  He was, however, pretty unfazed.  Mom used to live in California, so he had some kind of…shake-proof genes.  He is undisturbed by this minor tremor.  Wish we could say as much for the National Cathedral!

An avalanche of bills.

Having survived this natural disaster, I am pondering what could have caused such an unusual event here on the normally stable (?) east coast.  William seems to have been studying up on this already.

Earthquakes. Hurricanes. Global Warming?

I wish I could provide more insights on the matter, but we’re all just waking up here, and we’re a bit discombobulated.

Text "Naps" to 12345 to help rebuild the cushion fort...

In the meantime, I am thinking about having a better  some kind of evacuation plan when the big one hits.  Perhaps we should start by being awake?

Stay safe out there, East Coasters!  Be alert.

    I saw just the title of this one on my phone when I was at the grocery store, and started laughing. You slay me.
    And really, I hope nothing broke!

    […] for Irene.  William has been working hard.  He doesn’t want to be caught out like he was during the earthquake the other day. Um. He WAS working really […]
