Earthquake 5.8 here in VA


 


The Epicenter was in Mineral, Virginia ... 5.8 on the Richter scale ... A whole lot of shaking.  Got the students into the doorways and outside.  Books stayed on the shelves, apart from the one that hit me on the head as I ran out ... and we lost the chimney on one of our buildings!

Marlene, are you nearby? I'm in Richmond and it was quite strong and of long duration here. Glad you're okay!

Alexandria - some damage to one of our buildings. Classes have been cancelled.

Can I assume any of those titles on your shelves have the Marlene seal of approval?

Yes, indeed

Glad you're ok. Are the pictures of your work or your home?
