    It sure seems that Mother Earth is getting mad at us recently.
    She is pitching a fit and blowing and shaking things up all over.

    Now a mild earthquake hit the coast of California...here in the central valley I never felt a thing, but folks in the bay area are kinda nervous.

    Stay safe everyone. Have your evacuation kits ready to go out the door. And when it gets light I'm going out to the garage and get the cats' carriers and their medical papers, blankets and canned food, plus some dry stuff for fussy Freddy, who hates canned food.

    I live less than 100 miles from the New Madrid fault line and it's a major fault line. Not looking forward to the puppy going off.

    They tell us here in South Dakota that if Yellowstone blows it would get us also. There is something everywhere. We are usually pretty safe from tornados here in Rapid City as we live near a couple of really big hills, and seems to buffer the winds. We do have alot of wind, kind of like living in OK. We lived in Elk City for a year . Just everyone stay alert and safe...

    CA is always shaking, so not a major concern. If you look at the website where they track them you see earthquakes happen daily. It is if we quit shaking then we need to worry because it is the minor shakes that relieve the pressure and keep the "big one" from happening.

    I'm thinking that those of you in the middle have gotten yours already! There were floods, fires, droughts and tornados-you want something else???!!!! I guess you're in the "right" place in the middle! Lucky you, although, so far Irene has been nothing but a lot of rain for me. Hope that's all she has to offer me.

    Sometimes I think that Mother Nature just has to tell the World, "Hey, look at me!!!" Often it seems that She has had enough with mankind and all of the "improvements" made!!! Mother Nature is still in control, and recently, she has been making that so very clear...lol...Naomi
