I can now add 8.9 Earthquake on the Richter scale as an event that I don't think I want to experience in my life. I can only imagine what it would be like at Price Chopper if this was to occur. All the toothless people with greasy hair hanging onto their kielbasa and Cheese Doodles absolute panic. Not fun.
I hope my Japanese family is safe. I will have to send them an email.
