“And now there’s another reason to ask, “Are you ok?” I just read about the 7.5 earthquake this morning. It does look as though effects in your region were light, and I’ve not seen any reports of damage or injuries. It did cross my mind to wonder how a stronger or closer earthquake would affect your reservoir. I’ve seen those videos of swimming pools in earthquakes — quite interesting.”(Comment from multi-talented Linda in Texas – The Task at Hand)
Thanks to all of you for your comments, your critiques on the recent art, and for your concerns about yesterday’s earthquakes. Yes, the first one gave us a strong dawn wake-up shake, and my house shook for over a minute. The second quake hit four minutes later, and the third one waited 20 minutes as if to ask, “Are you awake yet?”
“Ah, Lisa, your intuition is working overtime again, amiga! There was more reason than you imagined for people to ask after your welfare. Hopefully you are still OK, and I now see that you are pretty far from the earthquakes’ epicenters. “ (from another multi-talented blogger friend Lynn – Blue Brightly)
Would you like to join the ‘water watchers’ to see the water going over the dam?!!
From Cuenca High Life: “Although reports of damage and injuries continue to come in, Ecuador’s Secretariat of Risk Management (SNGR) says Friday morning’s 7.5 magnitude earthquake in Morona Santiago Province could have been far worse.”
Thank you again for your comments and concerns; how’s the weather where you are?
I hope to be back on line on Tuesday. Until then I’ll be watching nature, the water, and painting!
