Leave Seattle, Experience an Earthquake

We're in Chicago visiting nephew Mark and the Field Museum (me, for research for my grant) and I woke up this morning thinking "Jim's shaking the bed. Oh, yeah, no, an earthquake. Wild."

It amuses me that I go to Chicago to feel the first earthquake since the Nisqually in what, 2001? 2000?

It was the first earthquake Mark's ever felt. Jim slept through it.

I had a great day at the Field. Notes galore. There again, it was the Northwest Coast First People's artifacts I was looking at.

Two typical Northwest things I went to Chicago to experience. Ha!
