August 23rd, 2011

Today was very exciting.  As most of you know I live in Maryland and unless you live under a rock, you know that there was an earthquake in Virginia.  Virginia is south of us, and where the earthquake epicenter was is about 2 hours and 30 minutes away.  I was at work when the quake happened and let me tell you, it was a little scary.  Mostly because I work in a grooming salon and most of our "walls" are in fact glass windows.  It's like a fishbowl, where you can watch groomers groom dogs.  Everyone who had  a dog grabbed the dog that was on there table and went outside.   After a couple minutes we all went back in the building and resumed our day. 

When I got home, mom filled me in that Peanut hid under the bed from the time of the quake until I got home.  Poor dude, he must have been scared.  When I walked into my room I assessed the damage, ha ha.  There wasn't any.  My brush fell off my dresser, and a couple picture frames fell off the bookshelf.  In all seriousness though, I hope those who were closer to the epicenter are ok, and no one was seriously injured.  That includes my internet friend Shari, her husband, and their Miniature Schnauzer, Bodie.
