You know yesterday was a foreign day. I had several things go on for the get-go fourth dimension ever. One upshot y'all may conduct hold heard of was the earthquake. The epicenter is nearly xv miles from my share inwards Spotsylvania County Virginia, a few miles from Fredericksburg. I was standing inwards the forepart share talking to a co-worker when the edifice started to shake. When it didn’t halt shaking, together with started to milk tremble harder, nosotros knew it wasn’t the air conditioner or somebody moving furniture. It takes a few seconds to realize what is actually happening. It was real dramatic together with intense together with for a brief minute I wondered if somebody had bombed our piddling town. My boss ran into the forepart share telling everyone to evacuate the edifice that nosotros were having an earthquake. We knew it must conduct hold been an earthquake, but it’s almost similar it wasn’t real. It was shocking inwards a way.
We all got out of the edifice together with i time exterior I could withal experience the basis shaking. We stayed exterior for a spell until they told us it was rubber to become dorsum in. They decided to evacuate a 2nd fourth dimension due to some problems that our General Services subdivision had to fix. At this cry for they sent us abode for the twenty-four hours to banking concern fit on our ain homes, children together with animals. My dogs together with truthful cat were fine together with entirely had a few things fall and hit the floor.
If you’ve ever wondered how long xxx seconds tin seem, a vehement shaking earthquake volition reach y'all some idea. The Lake Anna Nuclear Power Plant is real unopen to our abode together with nosotros are inwards the evacuation area. Lake Anna had problems when it was striking amongst the earthquake together with straight off unopen down. The backup ability did non come upward on together with the 2nd dorsum upward was started. This could conduct hold been real bad. That seems scarier than the earthquake itself. Anyway that was a first.
Yesterday was also my birthday thus it was the get-go twenty-four hours I was 52 years old. I volition ever cry back this birthday every bit the i twenty-four hours the Earth shook. The 3rd matter that happened was I made a homemade chocolate birthday cake amongst homemade chocolate buttercream icing, together with it was good. If you’ve known me for whatever length of fourth dimension y'all likely know that I don’t brand proficient cakes. I brand pies. Big difference! There was that incident amongst the Red Velvet Cake that I’ve never lived down. Since everything was ‘different’ yesterday I somehow establish my baking mojo together with whipped upward my ain birthday cake. Maybe it was because the trace per unit of measurement area was off. Who’ll tending if it doesn’t plough out good? I won’t ruin someone’s birthday. If my cake is dry out together with non edible, I won’t fret! But wouldn’t y'all know it’s yummy!
I talked to many of my siblings, children together with traveling hubby yesterday too. One of my brothers asked if it was Armageddon upward hither amongst Hurricane Irene heading this agency for the weekend? I said it does appear similar a foreign calendar week thus if this is the end, I intend I’ll conduct hold to a greater extent than chocolate cake now. What the heck!! If this is the end, I’m going out amongst an upset breadbasket yesteryear golly!
