Earthquake Hits North Dallas! Well, Sure.

A Friend of Unfair Park dispatches this report from the U.S. Geological Survey: My near-neck of Northwest Dallas had itself a teensy-tiny earthquake in the wee small hours of the morning -- at 12:11:49, to be precise. As in: "Magnitude 2.0." Or, as Matt Peterson calls it, a "microquake." Which, I am told, is far less exciting than a "housequake."

Per the coordinates, the event, such as it was, occurred on (well, beneath) Northwest Highway, between Inwood and Midway, not too far from the Original Pancake House, which reminds me: breakfast. Oh -- didn't feel a thing. Seldom do that time of day.
