Everything okay?

I remember there was a little 4.0 or something over by Beaumont that we could feel a bit. That was pretty cool, but more because it was too weak to do anything.

the epicentre was away from the main city in some small towns which got some damage.

Nothing too much, but a few houses may have some structiral damage and cracks. dont think anyone got hurt

5.2 it measured. like i said, melbourne never gets them, so was weird.

Facebook and twitter went nuts

I started to list all the freeways that can suck it; realized that every freeway in the metroplex can suck it.

Thought I'd let you guys know, not that I've met any of you I'm moving to Austin within the next couple of weeks, took a job at Collings Guitars, going to be using my guitar building skills to make a living finally. I'll hopefully be able to catch a lot of Texas Stars games too.

Obviously still have friends and family here in Dallas so I'll probably be putting a lot more miles on my Pathfinder now

I've only been twice, once for the interview and once to check out the apartment I'm applying for. The 2nd time I drove there and drove straight home so I really haven't done much of anything there I did get to go to The Flying Saucer the first time though, just so I could compare it to the one I go to here. It compared favorably Plus it's really close to where I'll be.

That sounds like a sweet job man, congrats.

Depending on what kind of music you're into there aren't many better places in the country to live (and do what you'll be doing) than Austin.

College Station is great if you are a college student, however, after that point it has its limitations. Austin is great, love that city.

CS would also be a good place to raise a child, very good schools, lots of activities, and very safe.

You know who else will be moving to Austin? Matt Stajan after we trade for him and he gets waived and buried.
