day 46, as it just happened
a few minutes ago, i saw this really bright flash outside. Seconds later, the thunder was the loudest i ever heard, and felt since the sonic shock waves went through everything in the yurt, including me. erde, who fears nothing, ran over to me. leben looked puzzled. some aftershocks are still happening. (there goes another, five seconds after the flash. How fast does sound travel again? ). the rain is coming down hard and fast now. More than a downpour, less than a deluge. again, i have to congratulate myself for a wise decision to yurt it today, if yurt can also be used as a verb. would someone google tsunami for me to see if loud thunder can cause a tsunami? thank you.
