I find myself asking whether this earthquake is a wake up call for us to remember we need to be prepared for another 9/11. We don't want to be. We want to believe that it won't happen again. But it will at some point and we need to be ready in whatever ways we can.
It will take several days to gauge the overall fall out from yesterday's estimated 5.9 quake centered in Virginia, but it didn't take long for West Coasters to get extra snarky on Twitter and Facebook.
