Gettin' The Hang Of It
Zowie, Batman, we just had a 6.5 earthquake on the North Coast, about 22 miles offshore. Boy am I glad we weren't up here on our tree, because it was teetering. No, we're under the bed together and we won't come out.
Mom says if we were in a city somewhere, a 6.5 earthquake might have leveled everything. So we're feeling mighty lucky. About the only thing that's not working for us right now is cell phone service.
Earthquakes are scary when they're happening but they're few and far between. I'd much rather have to put up with this now and then than deal with hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, landslides, fires and God knows what else befalls other places on earth several times a year, every year. Those poor animals who wind up homeless and family-less, my heart goes out to them.
I think we may just spend the evening under the bed, until the coast, as it were, is totally clear. We might not be out of the woods yet.
Hope you're staying warm and dry!
Ciao meow for now!
