Shake It, Baby, Shake It

We had another earthquake (series) before 5:30 Monday morning (click here if you don’t know about last week’s quakes). One was magnitude 6.3 (or so) and really shook things up. However, it was at the same spot around 145 km/90 miles from here off the north coast of Africa and we didn’t have any damage.

AFTER MONDAY MORNING’S QUAKE,
WE SAW THE RAINS DOWN IN AFRICA (AND THEN A BIT HERE).

This time, the cats did feel it and they did panic. They were under the bed for the next few hours and even took some coaxing to come out and get their morning food and treats. And when Moose doesn’t whine for fresh food and water and Dudo doesn’t demand his morning treat, we know something’s wrong.

MELILLA, A SPANISH CITY ON THE NORTH COAST OF AFRICA
(SOUTHEAST OF THE QUAKE), SUFFERED A LOT OF LIGHT DAMAGE.

I called the Kid Brother Monday night. He was telling me about the mess the snow had made of the  New York City streets.

“The sidewalk is clean. The street is clean. But you can’t get to the street from the sidewalk!” he groaned.

I made the mistake of asking a question too complex for him to process and I realized when I had almost finished the question, so just let it go.

“What would you rather have, Chuck, snow or earthquakes?”

“Sunshine!” he blurted.

Come on over, Chuck, whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on — and sunshine.
