Shake, Rattle and Roll

So, I have lived through my first “earthquake”.  Okay, I admit that Western PA was not the epicenter of the earthquake that hit Canada today, but I did feel some tremors.  I’ve survived tornadoes and floods, but I have never felt the quiver of a quake — oh! and to take away from the theories that pets go crazy during earthquakes, our cat, who is a 17-year-old Diva alley cat from the streets of Pittsburgh, PA, slept through the shaking!  All in all, I will be honest, I was sitting on my bed on the second floor, and when I felt the tremor, I merely thought a big truck had driven by the house, (which would be a bit odd, we live on a small side street) and didn’t think too much more about it until I turned on the news.

Now, round two of Mother Earth.  We are preparing for severe thunderstorms with wind and hail.  Fun, fun, fun!
