Now a hurricane. Also MICE and comics.

Quick update -- the power went off in my neighborhood for a day or so, and a great deal of tree bits and some trees have fallen onto the road. But now the weather is sunny and beautiful, as if nothing happened.

Saturday Sept 24! I will be at Porter Square selling comics at MICE.

I will also have art in the comics art gallery at Lesley.

Also something possibly comics-related happening Friday Sept 23 at MIT, more details to follow.

Whoa! Earthquake!

Just felt a small earthquake. I thought the chair moving was my imagination, then I thought there was a heavy cart rolling through the building, then I thought someone was trying to get into the neighboring office door by banging on it.

But stepping out into the hallway, there was no one there.

I realized the door nearby was rattling on its own accord -- because -- as I held on to the doorjamb and felt the floors and wall sway -- the whole building was shaking.

By then, other people were trickling out in to hallway, asking if they were feeling the shaking as well. A few more moments, and it stopped, and little groups began to form to talk about what happened, and quite a few people were forming groups outside and calling others on cellphones. Despite one person's ideas that something blew up in the basement, it was soon confirmed to be an earthquake.
