I'm sure everyone knows about the earth quake that hit in Virginia yesterday; others felt shaking and I missed it! Was finishing up a massage and missed it! K15 was at the highschool working on computers and felt the floor shake. A17 was at home, in the kitchen; she did not feel the floor shake yet heard the stuff in K15's room (which is above the kitchen) shake. At first A17 thought Annabelle (our ghost) was being super active and was frightened. When she learned it was an EQ, she was not concerned! LOL I find that funny.
So today I am wondering about aftershocks and my whole prepper status. I feel pretty good about where our house is situated and a little concerned about water. It is gravity flow and 'should' work just fine without electricity; still gonna set additional water aside for just-n-case.
One could easily be consumed by prepping and worrying; worrying can paralyze and I am not going to spend my time worrying. What does one do instead? Why, can pickles of course! And do laundry, clean rabbit cages, etc. And then go to work this afternoon.
My canning recipe comes from Better Homes and Garden's canning magazine. I'd like to share it with you here yet fear I'll violate a law and people will get cranky. *sighs* Oh, I do have pictures and a recipe to share... later though. Need to get ready for work. =)
