Thunder, Waterspouts, and Earthquakes

Our family has had its share of interesting natural phenomena the past week.

Hubby was in a small boat in a storm last Friday. The storm had a waterspout and they had to hunker down and hang on when the squall line came by. An American woman drowned near that same spot just a week before. I'm glad I didn't find out about it until after they were safe at Rama Cay.

This morning there was a big earthquake in Costa Rica. Because it was a deep one, Hubby and others were able to feel it in Managua, Nicaragua. It was frightened the people in Managua, even that far away. They've had bad earthquakes in the past, and it brings back some pretty bad memories.

We are also having a bit of hot, humid weather today. Though we haven't had much rain yet, it has been thundering off and on. This would be normal weather in the tropics or Midwest, but it is pretty rare here. I think Nature is all mixed up!
