Since driving Krista and Quinn to the airport last Wednesday, we have resumed our farm duties until they return at the end of this week. The weather has been sublimely beautiful in the mornings: clear blue skies, no wind, and warm. I spent one morning taking advantage of it by lounging in the hammock.
arMeanwhile, on Friday, there was a massive earthquake in the southern part of Mexico. There was a tsunami warning for the Pacific Coast all the way down to Costa Rica. I had to hear this news from Krista, who was in Oregon. We watched the news to see what was happening (not that a tsunami would reach us at 7,000 ft in elevation. I had to ask friends who live closer to the beach area to see if they felt any effect. I was told the waves grew large enough for good surfing, but that's about it. Nothing more than that. Phew.
And of course, we've been glued to the TV watching the progress of Hurricane Irma. Not only do we have friends who live in Florida and we're concern for their safety, but our layover is in Miami next Sunday, so we're curious to see if our flight will be cancelled based on the possible damage. It seemed very probably, but then the hurricane track shifted further west so who knows... maybe luck will be on our side... maybe. It all remains to be seen: we like living on the edge!
