Earthquake, Really


This is Kansas y'all. Technically they can (and do) happen anywhere...but this is Kansas. We know about thunderstorms, tornadoes, flooding, drought, the occasional blizzard, even the infrequent haboob (dust rather than sand). But these earth-shakes are somewhat new to us, which means we take to Facebook and Twitter to confirm we're not just losing our equilibrium. My husband was born here and my Continue Reading
