Blogging Doc's Home Video of Ice Storm Damage in Georgia

This is a video of Dr Rob's office they took refuge in down in Augusta, Georgia.  I am so surprised that Georgia can get an ice storm like this.  I also feel so sorry for everyone down there.  It was awful being without power for eight days because of hurricane Sandy in October, 2012.  It was cold, but not freezing, and at least it wasn't in the middle of winter.

Thankfully they have power in his office and could stay there.  While watching his video ...seeing the devastation and hearing him talk about the trees snapping and power lines falling ...I kept wanting him to go back inside.

I hope they can get back to normal as soon as possible down there.

Since I began writing this post, their power was restored, but a few hours ago they just had a 4.4 earthquake down there that was felt in the whole southeast.

 WHAT is going on?

 Ever with a sense of humor, he joked that he is waiting for the locusts to arrive.

God forbid.
We had an earthquake up here a couple of years ago ...a small one.  It was felt down in Washington DC too.  That was on a summer day.  And before that a year or so ..not sure ...we had a small one ... one evening during the winter.  These are not common for around here.

I've been meaning to get earthquake insurance and then put it aside.  I'm reconsidering.
