Snow, Freezing Rain, and an Earthquake

What a week last week was. We had our second bad winter storm of the month: this time with rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, and more snow. The ice build up on the trees was just short of what it would have taken for lots of us to lose our electricity. In the next county over 90% of the people lost power.

Here you can see lots of layers of the storm on our porch railing.  

Here is ice coating all the trees.
Then to add to all that on Valentine's Day evening, we had an earthquake. What? Exactly what I was thinking. It was just a rumble and I wasn't even sure what it was until the local weather interrupted the Winter Olympics to say there had been an earthquake.

Certainly this week can be better than last!

  1. We had an earthquake here in NC a couple years ago. Everything was shaking. Scared the heck out of me! Looks like better weather coming soon!
