Earthquake!

Earthquake!

Michael and me
Michael and me

At about a quarter to twelve this afternoon, the City of Riverside shook. I heard later there had been an earthquake and I thanked G-d that I had survived.

While the ground was shaking, Michael was putting on Tefillin. Hashgacha Protis (divine providence) became the word of the day as we discussed the series of events which brought about our meeting.

Basically it goes like this:

Michael had recently been promoted, and could now work from any of his company's locations. Someone was unable to make it to work this morning so Michael was sitting in for him when we chanced by.

The earthquake had disabled the telephone service. Since employs are not allowed to talk on their cellular phones inside, Michael went out to call home and assure everyone that he was ok. When he saw us parading (see my last post for more on that) he decided to do something for G-d.
