Time for a nose-count

Have the northwest corner to myself (I think). Where is everyone else?

Hey Still,

You are not alone!!!!!!
We are in Carroll County. Sounds like you may be in Lake or Obion? I lived in Lake for a while and Weakley also before buying property in Carroll.

Hi Spike.
We live in Obion county. Was born and grew up in Decatur county. At least you are moving a little further from the New Madrid fault line. Think we are sitting almost on top of it. :P

Hey Still,

Feeling the ground move under your feet is a real disturbing experience. LOL
I grew up in north Miss. playing on the Mississippi river. I really enjoy the river, but thought it would be good to put a bit if distance between the homestead and the New Madrid area.
Do you remember, in I think it was 1990, when there was a guy predicting a major earthquake on the New Madrid fault. I was working on remodeling the Federal building in Memphis at that time, and while I do hold much faith in most predictions, it still made everyone a bit nervous. Glad it did not happen at that time. LOL

Remember that prediction well. Think everyone here had a "pre-picked" piece of equipment to roll or crawl under. Ha.
I bought key-ring flashlights for both step-kids to keep on them. And was also glad it was a non-occurance.....but am still prepping for it.....

Lots of hills-and-hollers here from the last one..... :P

I'm a little bit further east than Washington. I'm not enjoying this freezing weather but at least it's not as cold as our northern neighbors!
