Did we miss anything?
Last night at 8.52 we thought we heard a large helicopter – not unlike the giant orange Sikorsky Skycranes that we have become accustomed to hearing on their way to or from the fires – passing close overhead. Not.
An earth tremor measuring 4.6 shook the house for about 5 seconds (though it seemed like a minute at the time) and loudly rattled all the special beer glasses on the special beer glass shelf.
None were lost.
To the man upstairs, that’ll do us for now. Thanks.
