Today in History

Today has been a very stressful day for the east coast of the US.  We've been experiencing hurricane "Irene".  The backside of the storm is finally beginning to depart the NC coastal areas where she first made landfall but none too soon.  This has been an ongoing event for over 24 hours.  She did extensive damage and sadly there were lives lost from the storm.  My heart goes out to those families.  The clouds parted long enough for me to see this beautiful sunset.  It signals, for me, the calm after the storm.

So today on the east coast we had a rare earthquake.  It was in VA, but we felt it here.  It was a 5.8 quake, not causing much damage.  But for awhile it created quite a stir.  I was sitting on my couch working on the computer and felt the house shake.  Very freaky feeling.   I decided to do a quick AJ page to document the event and to get some of the feelings out on paper.  I only had a few minutes and really had no time to think, just put it on paper.  Sometimes that makes the best pages.  Create without thinking!
