That sounds like back in Ohio, in I think..'94. We had about 36 inches of snow and school was cancelled for about a month. I don't think we would ever see that here in SC. People wouldn't know what to do if we did.
Same here. Although this last winter we broke the record of the most snow ever seen in a winter where I lived. One location saw like 30 inches of snow in one storm. And then that night we broke the record low and it got down to -30 degrees just a little further North of where I live.
2011 has been the strangest year in weather I have ever seen.
Yeah, it is November, it's supposed to be not so warm. It's actually pretty cool being in the upper 60s (that's really cool compared to a few months ago where everyday was in the 100s) but it's just warm enough to allow severe storms.
It wasn't, but it is really creeping me out. I was listening to music and not really paying attention to anything, but then my bird started freaking out and I noticed that the trash can in the hallway was tilted sideways (over something else keeping it from falling on its side). That's when I sat still and realized that everything was shaking.
There are severe storms around so I thought that maybe thunder had upset my bird, but there was an earthquake. It really wasn't bad, but seriously... This is freaking me out.
We're also under a Tornado Watch. Tornadoes have touched down in Southwest Oklahoma.
It is really annoying to not be able to feel them! But as I said in my post earlier I don't want to actually wish for them to happen. Houses where I live are not built for such things (you'd think that they would be since we have tornadoes).
The funny thing about the one on the East coast was that me, living where I am where we never get earthquakes, was getting ready to go take a shower and I decided to go put the drink I was drinking in the fridge. There was only an unstable place to put it and I was like "I better find somewhere stable just in case there is an earthquake!". The East coast earthquake happened while I was in the shower. o_O
When there was that earthquake on the east coast a few months ago, people here in South Carolina felt it. My boyfriend called me and asked if I felt it, and I said.."Uhh, no?" I was disappointed because I didn't feel it. I don't know if I just wasn't paying attention or it did shake where our apartment is. He said he could feel it in the car because he was at a red light
It drives me crazy that I didn't get to feel it! I did feel something in the car, but it was most likely just the wind's movement when driving past another car. Although it didn't happen when driving past any other cars and I remember it, and they say earthquakes feel like a wave going through the ground. So maybe... Or maybe I'm just crazy. =P
