This morning, at approx 9:15am, the floor in my study went wild, as did the possums who live in my roof.
I galloped outside to meet OH, who had exited his workshop, and agreed, yes, it’s an earthquake.
It was somewhat concerning across lots of SE Australia, even as far north as Newcastle, the last recipient of a much nastier episode.
More importantly, in my opinion, is that it’s about time Australians grow up and understand that we aren’t immune from catastrophe.
Catastrophes take all sorts of shapes. Weather? Yep! Seismic events? Yep! Meteor impact? Yep! Climate change and the world heating beyond where we can live it it? Yep!
One of these catastrophes is avoidable: get rid of all the politicians and plutocrats who don’t give a flying fiddle about climate change.
