I’m thankful to live in an area of the world where natural disasters are few and far between. And while I think I can handle tornadoes, hurricanes, flooding, and maybe even wildfires, I take for granted day in and day out that ground I walk on will stay right the hell where I expect it to be. I was in LA shortly after the 1994 earthquake and that made an impression on me like nothing has before or since.

So I am a little freaked when I had just come home to an email from a friend met in Iceland who informed me of the 6.1 earthquake that hit the country today. Really hoping the best for everyone over there and that all is okay.

Hildigunnur, if you read this, drop a line and let us know how you are!
