I was planing to post a watercolor painting however, as I was finishing the post, the earth moved and not in a nice way!
A strong quake shook us here in Athens bringing back memories of the big one in 1999.
This one was ‘just’ 5.1R however the epicenter was so close and near the surface that it felt like the building was being …uprooted – shaking up and down and sideways!
One of the frightening things about such earthquakes is the rumbling sound while it lasts [and those seconds seem so very long!].
Anyway, our eyes and ears are focused on the Athens Institute of Geodynamics for updates. So far, however unpleasant it may be or sound, we’re having many aftershocks ranging from 2.5 to 4.4 on the Richter scale, which makes seismologists say that it was most likely the main one. Still, for a couple of days, we have to be alert…
So, I just wanted to let everyone know, all is well here.
