Just catching up on my ATS reading after being computerless for 5 days!
Had everything ready for Sandy, they said we could have some
power outages & flooding here in our part of PA too.
Had links to live web cams in NYC, the local scanner on my favorites bar,
& I was following the Sandy threads on ATS...
And then the power winked off here for just a SECOND,
& the computer was gone!!! Not the internet which I expected to lose,
because it goes out a lot for no discernible reason, but the whole computer!
Youngest son said later, something about a corrupt file & losing Windows!
So hubby & I were left cut off from ATS & the eq world,
& had to rely on MSM for our news until our son had time to work on it!
It was awful, a tech handicap!! Felt sooo cut off from the world!
Can't even imagine the poor people in NY/NJ coping with everything!
I was surprised though, I caught BBC news late the first night on PBS,
& they were the only ones that I heard mention possible problems from
Sandy to the nuclear power plants on the east coast!
We figured if anything big happened it would be on the news,
but most 6's don't even make the crawler anymore.
Even the Queen Charlotte one was only barely mentioned,
& that was mostly on the Weather Channel!
Sunday we helped shred 450 pounds of cabbage for homemade sauerkraut,
& yesterday our middle son came to help us with firewood.
So today I'm catching up with no interruptions I hope!
(Until hubby gets home & I go vote anyway!)
Anyhoo, 'nuff rambling....
Last night the cats were really acting up. They didn't go under the desk,
but were acting so out of the ordinary.
Old cat, (at least 16), was running/racing back & forth to the back door like a young dog!
Claws making noise on the bare floor!!! And bunching up the throw rug by the door.
And he was yowling too. Then later he went into where young cat was sleeping,
walked right up to her & put his ears back & stared at her. Like he was looking
to pick a fight. She woke up & was too scared to move!
I had a hard time getting him to walk away. I thought he was going to bat her!
Then a couple of hours later young cat came over to me & wanted a LOT
of attention for longer than she ever has. And she was trilling for quite awhile too.
When I checked the eq's I saw the 5.7 & 5.4 in Indonesia about an hour before,
But that shouldn't have done it. Then there was another 5.4 later,
but the way they were acting seemed too much for something that small & far away.
Later they were sleeping less than a foot apart, not a usual thing either.
So during the night there was a 3.7 in NY, which might make more sense as I'm in PA.
But when I read the posts here I'm not sure if that's it either!
I guess we'll have to see if you all keep reporting more symptoms.
I'm not feeling anything much, & hubby hasn't called with any symptoms (yet),
so I guess we'll just have to wait & watch!!!
