I just found out that around 5am this morning, a small (3.6) earthquake rocked Maryland! Now normally at this crazy-early time I would be dead asleep and nothing short of the house falling down can usually wake me up, but this morning I was actually conscious and felt the house walls shaking and stuff around me rattled a bit. Now, come on, earthquakes don't hit Maryland, and my best guess was that maybe a large plane had flown a little low overhead. I shrugged it off and didn't give it any more thought until I heard the earthquake report just now. So, wow, I experienced my first earthquake a few hours ago!
Oh, and what was I doing awake at 5am? Knitting, of course. My insomnia became a lot less frustrating after I learned to knit. At least now I get something done rather than stare at bad infomercials. Mystery sock clue 3 came out yesterday (a day earlier than I thought), and I finished it up on the first sock right around the time the earthquake hit.
And yes, I feel pretty good about myself that I guessed this clue would have an autumn feel to it. I love the little trees. This sock is not my usual style and not something I would have ever picked out to knit, but I sure am enjoying it.
