Why Nott Me: April 2008

Friday, April 18, 2008

Remember, I live in Indiana. But this morning at approximatly 5:38am I was woke up to our house shaking. I couldn't believe it. At first when the roof started making noise I thought that the wind had picked up, but then I could feel the whole house shake. A 5.4 quake, lasted about 45 seconds. It's epicenter was about 25-30 miles south-west of Vincinnes, which might be about 75-85 miles from our house (as a crow flies).
Hubby was still asleep.. well he was until I woke him up! Our house sits on a basement and I could feel it moving. Creepy, more so I thought than a tornado. Hey, at least you know when they're coming!

I just want it noted that yesterday it was 71. This morning it is 43 (high is suppose to be 44), cloudy, windy, drizzly. I've had a sore throat for days now. I want to blame allergies but it is persistant and now there is a cough. I don't have time to be sick.
The auditors will be at work next week. We have offically closed(sold)one of our smaller divisions. Makes me sad. I've been at my job for 12 years and we've never had that happen before. It might not make me so sad, but some people lost their jobs. Some that had been with our company for YEARS. I worked directly with several.
My mom, niece and I were going to a Fiber Event today. It's mostly outside. But since I feel so lously, we cancelled. I'm going to lay back down. Maybe when I wake up I'll feel better. Maybe I'll knit the time I would have spent going to the event that might make me feel better. I've decided to order some stuff online to console myself, but I'm not doing that until after my morning nap.
And so how was your week? I'm thinking yours had to be better than mine! I'll take some pictures later to post.
