An Earthquake? In TEXAS?

Yep. Nothing massive, mind you. Around a 3.7. Just enough to rattle your grandmother's china, and slosh you from one end of your water bed to the other. It was centered around Karnes County, which is about midway between Victoria and San Antonio. About an hour away. (Only in Texas do we measure distance in time rather than in miles -- unless it's close enough to "spit on" or "throw a rock at".)

Earthquakes are RARE. Humongously rare. We see more hurricanes hit land here than we get earthquakes. So this little quiver in the ground is making big news around the state.

Makes me wonder what's gonna come next.
