As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Incurs an Earthquake!

Martha’s Vineyard apparently got just a wisp of the earthquake that was centered here in Virginia. He’s on the golf course – not clear if he felt it.

I felt it though. As your brave blogger was preparing a new post for you, the whole house began to shake. Lasted about 10 to 15 seconds. I thought for a moment maybe the washing machine, which was on, had gone into some type of unholy spin cycle.

Waiting to see if this was the mainshock of a foreshock. In the latter case, there’s worse – or better; it was kind of fun – to come. What a gas, Jumpin’ Jack Flash.

  1. Talk about shaking up the government! Maybe this is God’s way of getting their attention, considering there has not been an earthquake in that area since 1897 when William McKinley was president.

  2. Good to hear all is well with you. Is that the first quake you’ve experienced? Never thought they were fun, but hey you folks in D.C. have an unusual sense of humor ;-)

  3. It’s good to know that you remained at your post to carry on your duties to entertain and enlighten us even when faced with grave personal danger.

    Seriously, we’re glad there aren’t any reports of casualties or major structual damage. Earthquakes are scary things.

  4. The epicenter was about 70 miles from me. Southside Virginia’s had an earthquake and now there’s a hurricane on the way. And what’s with all these freakin’ locusts?
