I just read Peggys post, on her blog The Day to Day Life of a very Lazy Gardener. Peggy lives in Scotland, and she blogs about a Boxing Day earthquake, the epicenter of which, was in Dumfries. Yikes! You can read all about it in this article. This photo of Dumfries copied from the BBC article.
Some of my regular readers, may recall that my cousin Lee, who visited here in the fall, lives in Dumfries with her mum, my Great Aunty Ruth, whom Lee affectionatly calls Rufus. Thankfully, nobody was hurt and damage was minimal. Funny though, reading something like that happening where you have loved ones just makes you want to be with them and give them a hug and makes me very relived that it was'nt worse. Lee and Ruth live in a very old cottage with thick walls made of stone. It would take a much larger earthquake to damage that house.
This photo of Lee came out very dark. I have played with it on my Adobe workshop, I lightened it and converted it almost to black and white.
