    Good Morning Heather,
    So glad that it was over quickly. What time is it there? It is now 13:14 over here in Cape Town.

    Dry feet, but sore feet from all the moving critters and supplies yesterday. I was glad to finally get off my feet. :) Still waking up this morning.

    The odd thing about the weather yesterday afternoon and evening... It didn't feel like a big storm was getting closer, if that makes sense. It was really humid, uncomfortably warm, and STILL. No wind, no breeze, no rain... and stayed that way until well after midnight.

    That will change, though. The worst part of a hurricane is to the east side of the eye, or the northeast quadrant. The eye will be west of here.

    I'm finally hearing rain outside now.

    Not bad yet, but this storm is going to take a while to landfall and move through the area.

    My significant other is hunkered down at work, so he's sleeping in his office starting last night and probably through Thursday morning, at least. Emergency management for the local community college. They're understaffed, and he's been busy.

    Thankfully, I'm not in an earthquake zone either. . . come to think of it, I guess I'm living the life! Be safe. I hope all is well when you are allowed to return home.

    Are you sure about the earthquakes? Granted, it's been years since looked into it, but I was thinking there was a fault line that ran under some of the major cities in Europe... from London to Istanbul. I want to say it hasn't been all that active, but may have experienced some activity shortly after I moved back from the UK. Maybe somewhere in the 2008 timeframe?

    All disclaimers apply, as I've been preoccupied with hurricane evacuation, and I had to settle for iced coffee this morning... :)

    Me too.
    It's pure crap.
    I'm soooooo glad that global warming isn't real.

    I’m not sure. Looks like someone decided to patch Apple’s apple

    Greetings from Rome.

    There was a pretty bad earthquake in Italy a couple of years ago. And of course Vesuvius and Etna are both active volcanoes. Greece has had some bad ones too. The European quakes are usually not so severe as those in other parts of the world.

    I’m glad you’re safe. I hope Michael doesn’t cause too much damage

    That’s me caught up. Lunch eaten, chatted at length and now a drive in beautiful sunshine with autumnal colours down to my meeting about 20 miles from here.
