I can't show you a photo of the earthquake so I'll show the thermometer.( Please ignore the ugly stepladder on the roof) I took this a few minutes ago and the temperature will surely rise another couple of degrees later on. Incredible heat for us and also incredibly low humididty. 14 % last time I checked. Of course this makes the heat less unbearable than if we had a humidex but my skin is so dry!!!
About the earthquake..... around 12:45 this morning I awoke to the bed shaking as if a giant was yanking it back and forth. It lasted only seconds but I was wide awake and thinking it must be an earthquake. Sure enough, morning news revealed we had a 3.3 magnitude with the center about 7 km Southeast of town. We've had lesser ones, ones that made the diningroom chandelier sway but never one this serious. My son said he was awakened by the noise ( rumbling) but I didn't hear it, just felt it. I don't think there was any actual damage. Fortunately.
