Let’s just clear the air, ok?
I know you all read the article. Yes, the 12 page earthquake article in The New Yorker. No, I will not post the link because I refuse to give them anymore of my business.
Allow me to summarize: Basically, the biggest earthquake in America’s history will occur right in the smack dab middle of where I sit. It will devastate all the major cities in the Pacific Northwest. There will be no hospitals or running water for weeks. 13,000 will die. 27,000 others injured. There is a 1 in 10 chance of this happening in the next 50 years. I’m no mathematician, but I don’t like my odds.
I’d just like to speak with this magazine’s editor. Why would you do this to me? I feel so personally attacked. You know Washington is not my first choice of home & now THIS???? How do you expect we to function normally? Now I can never visit the Pacific Ocean (oh did I not mention there will be a tsunami killing all on the coast when the quake strikes). Y’all know I’m about to go into full blown doomsday prepper mode over here with my bottled water & non-perishable snacks. I might even have to buy a dagnab kayak because there’s a possibility the only mode of transportation will be by WATER.
It was really nice knowing all of you.
