But the month went out in the weirdest way I have ever seen in my life. Yesterday we had an earthquake, (very rare), a tornado, (very, very rare), snow, rain, sunshine, thunder snow, and hail! It was truly a crazy, crazy day!
Mandy sent me this meme. The date is wrong but it’s still funny! Dennis said he was sitting at his desk at work and all of the sudden his chair started wobbling back-and-forth and he looked up and the light fixture was moving. We had an earthquake here years ago. I’m not sure of the exact date but I think it was about 20 years ago. The epicenter for this one was in Idaho between here and Boise. Compared to the earthquakes that I have felt in Japan, this one was relatively mild, although it was rated as a 6.5 in strength.
The tornado was about 100 miles from us and didn’t do any damage, but it was quite a good size tornado. They are really rare here. It was one of the reasons I was happy to move to Washington. After growing up in the Midwest and living through a lot of tornado warnings I was happy to be away from them.
The snow, thunder snow, hail, rain and sunshine were pretty strange too. So far this morning we have had about a half an inch of snow but it’s melted already.
I promise, this post is NOT an April fools joke. All of this really did happen. Just thought I would share with all of you.
On the knitting front I finished the leg and turned the heel on a sock yesterday evening. I hope you are all doing well and hanging in there. From all of the news accounts, it’s going to be a rough few weeks ahead in the United States. Stay home and stay safe.
