Ever since ‘89 and Cousin in San Francisco he calls everyone for any tremor he feels.
His mother was a little irritated by his not calling her immediately. Can anyone say Sat phone and speed dial for cousins now.🤣
Keep suggesting 6.2 or 6.9 are call worthy. Nope any tremor is call.
Greetings and good morning from Hot sunny 🌞 Tucson, Az 😁. Hope everyone has a wonderful blessed Sunday enjoying a cool refreshment On The Front Porch 🙂
Sunday awoke to cousin in VA calling to tell me he was fine - huh?
Seems VA , North & South Carolina, TN had a 2.6 to 5.1 earthquake, this morning around 8 am.
Slight damage to his brickwork, and he lost a few bottles to gravity and slate floors.
Here it’s 83* and time to mow, think 5.1 is low on Richter scale?
But, figured I should ask how Y’all are doing.
It’s these times I remember we have a quake line running through Maine, and our 5.0’s have slept through.
Was going to suggest RadioShack dot com, if people want masks 50 for $20, and hand sanitizers if you can’t find locally. Yes, they do still exist RadioShack, even have one local store.
@LaDolceVita , hope you're feeling better. You can't be too careful these days.
There isn't a Kroger's in my area, but selling masks should be a win-win for stores. Everyone needs them and in the long run, reusable and rewashable will be cheaper than buying throwaways by the boxful. Not sure how many stores around here offer them (I don't do much in-person shopping these days 😁), but did get mine at Target.com. And I am seeing more colorful, creative masks on people than the old drudgy-looking generic ones. 😷
Virginia is the first state (and only one thus far) to offer a new app -- Covidwise. (You can read more about it at link.) A joint effort between Apple and Google, I installed it when it first became available. Of course, participation is strictly voluntary, but the conspiracy theories and urban legends that have emerged are typical in today's social media world. However, I am willing to contribute in any way possible to fight COVID-19. I also participate in Fitbit's COVID-19 study.
Nice sunny day here, not too hot which is good since my AC/heater unit went down. Got a standalone temp one with fans set up everywhere to circulate the air. Small house, but upstairs loft area can get a little warm. New one to be installed any day now, maybe today. One thing about renting, you don't have to pay for major repairs. 💸
Goody morning, Front Porchers!
Here's a little video about a couple of fast fur friends. Love and sweetness to start the day.
Enjoy your weekend folks.
No humidity 👍= comfy 80* a drip free day😷.
Overly tired vitamins and power nap/sleep, I let my body tell me, what it requires.
Only a few surprising 12 hour sleeps, when I slept through alarms, I must have been tired.🤣.
Back to searching for those pesky shingles for roof, they have to match. Rather not need to buy in Vermont, Maine and/or NH no problem.
Good Friday Morning, Porch Peeps!
Gloomy here, humid but cooler for now. Started off with rain, then thank goodness it stopped long enough for my tree guy to come and survey the situation. He said it looks like a clean cut, so it shouldn’t be a problem. Also, it was not on top of the gas meter, whew!
As long as he was here, I had him look around and see if any other trees needed attention. Just 2 need some work, so he’ll work up the estimate and email it.
Looks like it will rain again. I have a load of laundry in the dryer…oh it just beeped. And, I unclogged the bathroom sink. So I’m ahead of the game so far.
@LaDolceVita ...Oh, I don’t like hearing that you are feeling so tired. It probably doesn’t help to know that during this pandemic, so many people are feeling the same. Wish I could send you some flowers.
@wvgirlforever ...YES! The last 2 nights I have had my windows open, too. I love it!
@LydiaN586309 ...Love that cat picture. Made me chuckle!
@DaveMcK ...It’s national lighthouse day!
Time for more coffee...
