Still shaking

Last night we came out of a dead sleep at about 1:30 am because of an aftershock. Apparently there was one yesterday morning too – 4.2 in Port. Now when we get them not everyone feels them. I didn’t feel the one yesterday, but Chris and I both woke up around that time and we think it’s because the earth was shaking, but we just thought it was the other moving in bed. Last night I woke up and reached for him and we both just lay there waiting to see how long it would last. Chris said he heard stuff rattling, I wasn’t that awake.

Today is Manba day. The clinic is open again today so it should be another busy day.

Chris and Jean need to continue working on things to get arrest mandates done today. Seriously, WHY does it take over  24 hours to get an arrest warrant done up? This is one of those “I’m fed up” areas for me. If a guy comes in shaken, dirty and his clothes are ripped, what is the deal? Thinking about it makes my blood boil.

I guess an upside is that the road crew is fixing our driveway. That will be a blessing. Our driveway is kind of steep and after they fix the road and put in the new fill and raise it up there’s no way we’d safely get out. As it was we’d have to start honking at the bottom and hope and pray nothing was coming as we shot out and over the top of it. There were many close calls. They’re going to change the grade of it so it’s less steep and pack it down nicely. So excited, though life might not be as exciting. (There was supposed to be sarcasm in there, in case you missed it.)

  1. I’m so pleased that they have resumed work on the road — I thought all the road workers would be diverted to the damaged roads around Port. And what an improvement the new driveway will be!!! Yay!!!

  2. wow — still having aftershocks (are they still considered aftershocks this long after the first “shaking”??)

    Yeah for the driveway getting fixed!! That will be really nice for you guys!!

    We’re praying for you guys and that the arrest warrant stuff gets settled soon!
