Tuesday, temps and tremors…

It is not unusual to be hot and humid here where I live. Lately the temperatures and humidity have been in the high 90’s. We expect to be uncomfortable when out and about and depend on air conditioning to keep us cool. We also know that with this weather, there are rain storms, bad storms that cause damage, often with flooding and loss of electricity. Sometimes there is damage in the building where I live, but rarely anything major.

We also have earthquake tremors. Usually, the quake is so slight we don’t even know there has been any activity. But, last week two earthquakes midweek were felt and heard. The first one in the morning, I didn’t notice, but some folks in the building did. The second was in the afternoon, and I did feel the tremor and heard the rumble. Thankfully, there was no damage reported.

The storms bother me and the cats more than the tremors.
Is that weird?

  1. Here in the Shaking Isles AKA New Zealand, we are quite blasé about many small tremors, but the big ones are a different matter.

    1. I think it sounds worse than it is. We have never had any real damage due to the rare tremor. The thunder and rain storms we have are much worse and worrisome!

  2. I love the alliteration. Those 3 Ts roll right off your tongue.

    I will say, if I felt the earth shake, it would unnerve me quite a bit, not that I’d blame it, the way we’ve been treating it. I can see her with her hands on her hips saying…WHAT’S IT GONNA TAKE….I’VE HAD ENOUGH.

    On a brighter not, I love your writing regardless of the theme. 🙂

    1. It wasn’t a scary quake. Only lasted seconds and then it was back to normal. Mother Nature does seem to be losing her patience with us.
