Everyone is talking about the weather...and the earthquake
I really wish I had my camera tonight. I was driving home from the store and the sunset was the most beautiful I've seen on the west coast in a long time. It was that orange glow like a creamsicle gently changing to blue above it. Those sunsets always foretell a very hot day tomorrow. Everyone is talking about the heat. Funny, as it's only about 25 degrees. In a normal year that is simply a nice summer day, but this year, we're all running for air conditioning as if it were 35.
We had quite an earthquake in Sidney today. A 6.3. We got a phone call from Amanda who was working about three blocks away, asking if we felt the quake. Apparently they had noticeable swaying and we heard that cans fell off the shelves. We didn't feel a thing. How is that possible?
