4:36 am and I am awakened, as usual, by the feline alarm clocks known as Morgan and Duke. A couple of seconds later we have an earthquake.
An earthquake! In Tennessee!!
I grew up and spent 30 years in Los Angeles, so believe me, I know earthquakes. And this was definitely an earthquake.
And although I know the New Madrid fault is nearby, the last thing I was expecting this morning was a quake.
There's a teachable moment in here somewhere. Time to whip out one of my favorite books, "A Crack In the Edge of the World" by Simon Winchester, and toss today's lesson out the door and pull one together on quakes.
Gosh, I hate earthquakes, but I love teachable moments.
