    To keep it clothing related... hope it didn't affect Ron Rider too much (Richmond-based) and his ability to produce/ship sick ass footwear!

    Was in an elevator here in NC, it wobbled a bit and I figured the elevator was just a bit wonky. Then I got back to my office and everyone there was talking about an earthquake...

    My Daughter moved back to campus in Maryland this morning.

    I'm in Charlottesville, VA, about 30 miles from the epicenter in Mineral. Luckily, looks like very little damage in the CVille or Richmond areas.

    There were a few damaged or destroyed buildings closer to the epicenter in Louisa county, and the aftershocks broke some windows, lamps, etc. at the houses of my coworkers nearby, but we've heard no reports of serious injury.

    WELL!!!!!!!!

    Having not received a proper invitation I was NOT appropriately attired! :brick:

    Sky blue and white mini houndstooth Corneliani sport coat, White shirt, Orange Sherbet Cashmere tie by Emma Willis, Santorelli silk paisley pocket square, Borelli Khaki Trou, and to make matters all the worse, Grenson White Buckskin Oxfords with broughing.

    All of it decidely light colored and dandified for a natural disaster I fear.

    Fortunately, we only barely felt it here in ATL so survival gear was not neccessary after all. :sly:
