I felt that earthquake in #SanJose. But I rolled my eyes at Mother Nature and told her: not today please.

So far this morning we've had hail and a (minor) earthquake. I can only assume the locusts are on their way.

Slow down Mother Nature…
That’s a lot for this CA girl on a Monday morning.

Hail in East Bay Hills. A sloppy Boston Marathon. Thunderstorms. Earthquakes….
Sounds like Mother Nature is beating by her own drum today. https://t.co/lfHtCAega3
