Not So Easy Sunday

We had lots of excitement at our house on Valentine's Day.  

This was not an easy weekend!

First, Mom Paula was home for the third day from work because of all of the ice and snow.  The roads were starting to clear at lunch time and she needed to get to the church to pick up her check.  Well, as you guessed, she fell on the ice beside her car.  She didn't think she'd hurt anything, but her left shoulder (the one that just had surgery) and her left knee hurt.  Here is what our driveway looked like (you can see the ice beside the car).  Mom Paula's nice friend Whitney pulled up right after Mom Paula fell and Whitney helped Mom Paula clean off the windows.

Notice in the picture above that the yard across the street still had snow and ice at 12:00 noon. When Mom Paula got home at 5:30 pm, their snow was gone, but ours will still covered.

Then, last night around 10:21, we felt the ground beneath our house rumble.  We thought is was one of those big military cargo planes going overhead, but it just kept rumbling and moving.  Guess what?  We had an earthquake in the town of Edgefield, SC, which is about 60 miles from us!  It had a magnitude of 4.1 and was felt in Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.

We're ready for things to settle down again.  It's supposed to get in the 70s later this week.
No more ice, snow, or earthquakes - Okay?!?!

  6. That's way too much excitement, and not the kind you want to have. We hope that Mom Paula's shoulder starts to feel better again soon. We know she has the best two nurses in the south to help her!
