Well, I felt the earthquake here in Maryland. The computer chair started to vibrate. My first thought was "What are those children DOing?" the next was, "Is there a very large heavy truck on the street?". Then the idea of "Oh, maybe it's an earthquake." trickled through. It lasted about 5-10 seconds here, I think.
Now it's supposed to snow and ice and schlopp again tomorrow night. As a local radio person said several years ago on reading a 2 day forecast for snow "Abandon your cars NOW!" Many people around here seem to forget how to drive in snow every year. Sigh. Well, I hope it'll be be all snow and not ice. The kids first snowfort melted in the monsoon on Wednesday. (N.B. building a snowfort beside the end of the driveway is an excellent idea. They have to get building supplies from somewhere i.e. they shovel at least part of the drive.)
