Earthquakes and tornadoes... oh my! Yep... today we felt an earthquake in South Bend. Just slightly, but I felt it. I was at my desk and felt my chair rocking. I thought one of my co-workers were messing with me. Apparently there was a 5.5 Earthquake in Canada and we could feel it. Isn't that wild?!?! Then, as if that wasn't enough, I go home and watch the weather gradually turn into this major storm. I mean the tornado sirens were going, the sky turned pitch black. The pic below was taken about 8:00.. it's normally still light outside. It was kind of scary. Thankfully, Alex had gotten home about 1/2 hour or so before the storm hit and Doug, Ashlea, Richie, Alex, the animals and I were all safe and sound at home. There were several rotations in our area.. I haven't heard yet if any touched down. Our area is still suffering from a bad storm last Friday night. Thousands were without power, and now a lot more. We (knock on wood) have kept power through both storms... but our road is an absolute mess! (Don't get me started!).
