Our first natural disaster

Maybe we are jinxed or something but there’s always some major disaster or incident shortly after we arrive in the US. Last time, 10 years ago, it was 9/11. Yesterday, we experienced our first ever earthquake. We were all in the house at that time. The quake was a 5.9 magnitude that was about 30 miles from Charlottesville. Nothing really happened except the ground shook but it was alarming all the same because we didn’t expect it at all. This Saturday, hurricane Irene may be passing by the area as well. We’ll be buying some emergency supplies just in case.
