Terra tremuit!

The earthquake that rocked Mexicali about twenty minutes ago shook our building pretty hard for at least a couple of minutes. Even now the chain on my bedside lamp is still swinging, and I keep imagining swaying, but nothing fell off our shelves. I hope everyone in Mexico is ok, although it's such a big quake that it's unlikely everything is hunky-dory. We'll hear reports in a couple of hours, probably.

On the one hand, having an Easter earthquake is kind of nifty, given the connection to the Terra tremuit text. On the other hand, having a 6.9 earthquake is not at all cool.

A blessed Pascha to you all, and pray that those nearest the quake's epicenter will also have a blessed, peaceful, and safe Easter.
