It would fit nicely on the balcony..

March 11, 2011

After watching my daughter walk with the neighbours to school this morning, my SIL in Calgary suddenly calls asking if we’re ok after the earthquake.

Serves me right for not watching the news – “Umm. What earthquake, where?”

Oh dear. Poor Japan is in my thoughts and prayers today. {{{JAPAN}}}

Pacific earthquakes are always a worry for us N.A. West Coasters. Apparently just the northern areas of Vancouver Island are in tsunami warning today. Mom’s ok, we’re ok. Phew. But it reminds me that I made sure the place we bought could accommodate a life raft on the balcony.

It also happens that our beautiful neighbourhood is on a man-made island. Which puts us also at real risk of liquefaction should a big earthquake occur off our coastline. Isn’t that a lovely thought?

I’m usually not one for dwelling on the what if’s and torturing myself with thought of the devastation and drownings sure to occur in that likely event. But hasn’t there been an awful lot of large earthquakes recently? Vancouver Island had a small one 2 weeks ago which Mom felt, but no damage occurred fortunately.

At least the frequent stress relieving of the small earthquakes is supposed to make the chances of “the big one” far less remote, right? *cringe*

Hmm. I could always place some nice big ferns or something around it…
