Where Were You During the Earthquake?


A great conversation opener for years to come will be the question, “Where were you during the earthquake?” A 5.9 magnitude earthquake rocked the Mid Atlantic and New England states for almost half a minute last week. My favorite story so far was from a friend, who was in a chandelier shop in Philadelphia. Imagine the faces of my friend and the shopkeeper when the chandeliers began to sway!

We were in the folk art building at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont during this event and did not feel a thing. We found out via a text—the miracles of our modern age. Below are pictures of some of our favorite pieces from the folk are and carriage buildings.
