|My dog acted clingy before 6.9 NorCal|
Yesterday, I promised my two dogs that on Sunday, the first day of Daylight Savings, they'd have a fun dog day afternoon. And that they did. I'm talking long, long, long walk on trails; another romp at the park-beach; and back home for Frisbee and treadmill. I'm whooped and both senior and pup are dog-tired. It was a good pre-off season day at Lake Tahoe.
This morning I viewed the film The Impossible. It brought me back to 2005 when I penned The Man Who Predicts Earthquakes...covered The Big Wave (based on the December 26 2004 Indian Ocean Quake-Tsunami) and peoples' tales of survival. The movie was compelling. Since then, I do not like living so close to the deep, cold Lake. History tells it that we, too, had a seiche (big waves that were destructive on the West Shore) years ago and it could happen again after a powerful earthquake (we live near three fault lines). I spoke of this happening yesterday afternoon. Nobody believes me and tag me Debbie Downer.

Ironically, I love, love water. I love swimming, am a devout swimmer, adored a hot tub (early in the morning at a resort pool), and even listening to the soothing sound of water pumps on my fish aquarium and watching new, healthy fish swim--and I will not give up my waterbed. But I don't like Mother Nature's wrath. Speaking of violence...

folks felt the Earth move here, too! So I believe
my dog sensed the oncoming quake

Getting used to Daylight Savings Switch. Not fun. Stayed up to 1 AM. Skyler pup, my one year old canine with boundless energy woke me up at 5 AM. Doesn't it work on dogs. No extra sleep here. Tuesday morning I will swim and try and get back into the swing of it all. I prefer longer nights, shorter days. It's more fun to play in the house during winter. But the word is, winter forgot Lake Tahoe. Still there is hope. Come fall/early winter 2014 El Nino may pay our Golden State a visit and remedy our drought. Meanwhile, the sun shines, it rained this morning--I'm sleep deprived despite the cup of java. Catnap time with Zen, the laid-back Siamese who gets going with the flow.
