I am so glad that you are okay. I bet that was scarey. 15 inches of snow, that is a lot. It missed us, we were lucky this time. We only got a dusting of about an inch. We have been lucky all winter, we got hammered last year.

I hope that you and hubby are snuggling up by the fire.

Hugs, Karen

That is frightening.  We had a 3.5 earthquake when I lived in Ohio and I didn't know what was happening!  I thought our old furnace was going to explode so I ran out to the garage to see what was going on and realized it wasn't the furnace.  When I came back in, the sun catchers on my windows were banging and then I realized it was the ground that was moving!  By the time I got outside, it had stopped but my heart didn't stop racing for nearly an hour afterwards!
I'm so glad you are safe and warm.

I didn't even know there was a fault line up there Miriam. The one south of me awhile back rocked my world and it was an after shock. I slept through the earthquake that morning but it woke DH up.
Geez, I hope they don't both decide to rock someday or I will be caught in the middle. shocked
The last forecast I looked at last night didn't come true either and we are having a sunny day. Sorry to those that are still having a blizzard.
luv and hugs

My niece lives in Muenster Ind. and I am wondering if they felt it.  I live in NW GA and we had a small earthquake about 6 or 7 years ago.  I don't remember the magnitude but it was enough to wake my hubby and I up from a sound sleep.  It shook everything in the house.  There was another small one around 20 miles from here a few weeks ago but we didn't feel that one.  Be careful in the cold and snow.
