Close Calls


We've had an interesting day around here.  Louisa County, ground zero of the earthquake in August, had a pretty stiff aftershock yesterday.  Today, they had a tornado touchdown.  A house that was built in 1746, and lost a chimney in the earthquake, had its roof ripped off by the tornado.

Closer to home, a tornado moved through three counties, including mine.  It did a little bit of damage a couple miles from the homestead, but nothing major, and no injuries.  It passed over less than a mile away. 

Glad we have the NOAA radio for the house.  I still need to get a CB/NOAA radio for the Element.  I was on the way home and just happened to hear the alert on the AM radio instead of listening to a podcast.
