Everyone OK in VA?

I trust everyone is OK? The news says minor damage and some cracks in houses....

Here in Virginia?

Where exactly? I live in the northwest part and felt nothing.

It's just cold here.

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.)
