Long night last night.
There was a significant earthquake off of the north part of the island, and our tsunami sirens went off. People in low-lying communities were asked to move to high ground, so our little household grabbed the essentials and camped out in our car.
Leo, my tabby cat, refused to come with us. Next time, he’ll need to be in a kennel. Sunshine, our white cat, was surprisingly awesome. She hung out in the back window, looking around. She enjoyed herself.
This morning I asked her, “Do you understand why we went in the car last night?”
Because everyone was scared.
Were you scared?
No, I travel in style.
I don’t know where she learned that. What does that mean, travel in style?
She showed me a queen, showing everybody she is calm and unafraid. That’s Sunshine – royalty. Keep calm, carry on.
When it was determined that our town was not in danger of flooding, we went back home, but we were up until late what with the adrenaline.
So yeah, long night.
