The adventures of Fe & Chris


Whilst enjoying a quiet rest in our happy little house in San Marcos La Laguna the foundations shook. It was quite a noisy thing, went on for a good 20 seconds or so, and it would have spilled your soup, should your bowl have been full.

Fiona rapidly pondered what one is supposed to do during an earthquake - only when all became quiet did she remember we should hide under a table.

 We didn’t have a table.

Door frames my dear boy! I’ve been to the how to survive an earthquake experience in Tokyo and they say door frames are better than tables for two reasons. Firstly most tables are poorly made, Secondly if the building fails you will just be squished in a sandwich of materials and thirdly you are easier to find in a door frame. Also do not run outside as many folk get a slate or tile in the head that way and I believe that does you no good

To add to Keir’s insight, it is okay to run outside if you are in a small thatched hut in the middle on no where.

I would still rather not be hit by a hay bale. anyway if you are in the middle of a run down wee village I would just live with the hope concept rather than relying on door frames or tables or running

Just thought I would find out a little more about the earthquake, so google searched it . “The quake struck at 1:29 p.m. local time on 13th June and was centered 70 miles southwest of Guatemala City off the Pacific coast, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It gave a preliminary calculation of magnitude of 6.8.”
There was a very quick and very brief mention of ‘turkey vultures’ in ER on Monday night, I just heard the words, but wasn’t aware of the context!

When the Earth moves for me I find the safest place to position oneself for recovery is in a nice comfy bed.
