Tremors

There was another tremor just ten minutes ago (5:48 P.M.) so that makes three just today, or two if one doesn't count the one in the morning as a tremor, rather as an earthquake -- due to its length, intensity and persistence.

I was talking to a friend today who told me that apparently there is talk of some predictions some 40 years ago, in the 60's and 70's that they said there would be a series of devastating earthquakes forty years from their time (round about now) in this general region of Pakistan.

Incidently, Turkey is also expecting some serious earthshakin' type scenarios in 2006 -- for which they have been reinforcing their older apartment buildings and tall skyrises for some time now.

One thought they were safe on the ground as opposed to on the road or air, but apparently mother nature can make your life miserable anywhere, as long as you are on earth.

You can run but not very far...
