Earthquake And A Snowstorm

Earthquake And A Snowstorm

This morning we woke up to a 5.7 magnitude earthquake and a snowstorm!  The epicenter was right outside Salt Lake City in Magna, Utah.  We were just getting out of bed when the whole cabin shook from side to side.  At first we didn’t know what was happening, but we later learned about the earthquake.  Our pots, pans, and dishes were rattling, but as far as I know, we don’t have any structural damage.  It didn’t last very long, but I did get dizzy while the house was moving.  I’ve never been in an earthquake before, so it was definitely strange.

We also learned last night that the governor of Nevada shut down all nonessential businesses in the state for the next 30 days.  Since Andy’s job is based in Nevada, we assume that means his place of employment.  He’s going to talk to his boss today and get more particulars.  I generally try to be a positive person, but sometimes, it seems like everything happens at once, doesn’t it?  We are taking things one day at a time, even if every day has a new surprise for us.

We recently bought some tomato seeds, so I’m going to plant them today.  We may be homeless and without a job in a few months, but at least we’ll have some tomato plants!  Other items on the agenda include reading, watching movies, taking walks, and of course, cross stitching during this quarantine.  Luckily I’m one of those happy people who loves to be home with downtime.  I have no problem whatsoever with social distancing.  🙂

I hope you’re staying safe, positive, and in good health (wherever you are).

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!
