Aftershocks

This afternoon, we got another quick shaking to the tune of 3.7.

This evening, we had a protracted shaking of everyone's nerves as we tried to put Elise to bed. (Well, as Andy tried. I was a lazy slug and stayed downstairs handing out candy to all of the cute little munchkins.) Elise was convinced that the only way to keep earthquakes at bay was to sleep with the lights on. Grrr.

Stupid earthquakes.

For those of you out there who have experience with very real kid fears of very real and uncontrollable threats, what do you do? Obviously we'll be installing metal detectors by Elise's bedroom door and making sure she doesn't carry any liquids or nail trimmers with her. But that only works for terrorists, so now I need something for earthquakes. And really, any serious advice is appreciated.
