Anyone who is in the eastern half of the country or watching TV during the past few hours knows that there was a 5.8 earthquake in Virginia that shook things up all along the coast. What many don't know is that Colorado had a 5.3 quake just before midnight Monday. It was centered near Trinidad, Colorado, which is 35 miles south of Lathrop State Park where we are.

We were sound asleep and didn't feel a thing. Apparently, there were some aftershocks. We heard on TV that Colorado had experienced 13 earthquakes in the past 24 hours. We are glad we are in Colorado and not on the East Coast.
