We made it back home in time to watch the end of the LSU-Alabama football game, then stayed tuned afterwards for the local news. That's when they announced there had been a magnitude 5.6 (?) earthquake east of Oklahoma City, and said it was felt as far south as Dallas. (I didn't feel a thing.) As things turned out my daughter Kristan and her husband Chris were in nearby Norman, OK to attend the Texas A&M-Oklahoma
They were back in their 6th floor hotel room when the earthquake hit. Chris was lying on the bed watching TV and Kristan was in the bathroom removing her makeup. She told me she had to brace her stance and hold on to the door frame to keep her balance, and Chris thought for a second he was on one of those vibrating beds. Chris said he was prepared to stay and try and get some sleep, but Kristan was nagging him mercilessly wanting to pack up and leave town. Naturally she won, so at 2 AM they checked out and headed back to the civilized side of the Red River. Everyone is home now safe and sound, thank goodness.
That was my weekend. Not the "same old" for sure. ;)
