Hurricanes and earthquakes: Two of the prices of Paradise

I felt the earthquake yesterday- was sitting on a deck chair on the lanai and it trembled a bit. Just enuf to notice and think 'Hmmmm....I wonder if that was an earthquake." Apparently the other side of the island felt it a bit more.

Fortunately the threatening Hurricane Daniel east of the Big Island decided to turn into a storm and went away. It did incite me to buy a 5 gallon propane cylinder for the camp stove, and to get it filled. Also to review the hurricane supplies. We seem to be in reasonably good shape if the house doesn't blow away. Less so in that case.
