Southern Man

Wednesday, October 13, 2010


Southern Man was just about to walk out the door this morning when Casa Southern Man rumbled and shook for a good ten seconds. He thought at first that perhaps the neighbor's washing machine had run amock, then later heard the news that the epicenter of a magnitude-4.3 earthquake was a mere twenty miles south. Southern Man's little corner of the world actually experiences many per year but the vast majority go undetected by anything other than seismometers.

This is exciting 'cause it was Southern Man's first real earthquake. He was pretty animated about it at first but the first couple of co-workers he talked to were from California and that kind of took the wind out of his sails. But he will always remember where he was during the Great Southern Earthquake of 2010.
