To the fam, you probably heard that there was a big earthquake in China. It was a magnitude 7.9 according to the USGS, with its epicenter in near the city of Chengdu in central China, a little over 1000 miles away from Shanghai.

To put that in perspective, it was like an earthquake in Seattle and you live in Los Angeles. Some tall buildings built in former marshy areas of Shanghai swayed a little but neither Jodi (10th floor at home) nor I (2nd floor at work) noticed it until we saw it on the news. The China Red Cross is taking donations.
