An Earthquake and a Hurricane...Oh my!

Well, this week is certainly starting out with a bang!  Or at least an undulation, lol.  We felt the effects of a 5.8 magnitude earthquake at 1:51 PM.  I was in a location about 120 miles southeast of the epicenter.  Quite the experience for someone who has never had the pleasure.  Certainly has been the talk of the town all afternoon!  I thought a big gust of wind had blown through, but then the walls and the floor kept undulating.  There is no other word to describe it.  It did not shake or rattle.  It was like being on a boat in rough seas.  Your brain knows you are supposed to be sitting still, but your eyes and inner ear are telling quite a different story!  Quite disconcerting when the floor is moving and you know you are on a large concrete slab that should not be moving!  Just weird. 

Now we will be looking southward to watch where Hurricane Irene will be heading.  As of now, the forecast has it making a beeline right for us.  Thankfully, we still have plenty of time to prepare and for her to turn farther east and miss us completely! 

On the stitching front, I have gotten more done on Dress of Day Dreams.  I'm hoping to have this page done by the end of the week.  Here's the lastest.

Happy Stitching!
