Flood Gates and Earthquakes
I was just talking about (I guess that should say writing about) Missouri and the way it attracts natural disasters. And today this piece I wrote about traveling from St. Louis to Memphis along the New Madrid Fault was published in MeFi Magazine. MeFi Mag is, in the editors' words, "created and produced by members of the community weblog Metafilter" but "has no official connection with the site." Thanks to them for including me! And yes, I wrote the story. My username over there is DestinationUnknown, and Joanna and Joannah Kaplan are...a few of those mythical girls I'm often accused of being.
So read my account of the towns along the seismic zone that's someday going to destroy us all. Or just look at this pretty picture I took of some flowers in Sainte Genevieve, MO.
