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?

Snow, Ice, Earthquake…

The snow and ice are gone.

Everything is back to normal
although some folks still don’t have power,

and that is not good…they are not especially happy.
I would be very cranky.

So all is well…but…
last night we had an earthquake.

Really!

It was  a 4.1 centered about 60 miles from here.
There was a loud noise and the building sort of vibrated.
No damage and no one hurt.

So all is well.

I have experienced
tornadoes, blizzards, a hurricane, ice storms, and now an earthquake.
I am thankful that I survived them all
with just some inconvenience and no bad stuff.

Wonder what will be next?
