Speaking of pestilence and other disasters…..
My last post was a whine about the current state of our air quality in the Lake Tahoe area. Smoke from the ‘Rim Fire’ in California has taken up residence here over Tahoe. NOW, I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing a Nevada earthquake. YES, a Nevada earthquake.
Monday, early evening 5:51 PM to be exact, it felt like a giant, giant gave my house a shove. Just one big shove, but it actually moved the chair in was lounging on a few inches across the floor. I had some friends visiting and one of them says “What was that?’. Her husband calmly replied, ‘an earthquake’. I’m like; “WHAT DID YOU SAY’. A few minutes later we switched on the tube and sure enough, it was an earthquake centered about 50 miles away. YIKES!
I just keep reminding myself that in de islands they are now at the height of hurricane season.
