This blog is in honor of our Planet, a World more than worthy of having a place in the Universe

Every time we see snow falling, rain, a scary tornado, the dangerous howling winds of a hurricane, a volcano eruption, a tsunami following after a violent earthquake, a waterfall from the snow melting , a baby panda eating little bamboo branches, a whale surging from the ocean to catch some air, a peach tree blossoming in the spring, a wonderful rainbow after a storm, a humming bird feeding from a flower, tulips springing through the snow, the morning dew on the grass by sunrise, a blood red lunar eclipse, the stars in the sky in a clear and calm night, the birth of a new living creature on Earth to the tree dropping the last leaves in fall.

We all have witnessed how Earth embraces us... everything she does is absolutely unique.
Wouldn't you want to go and live in that planet? Yet we are here and many take everything for granted.

Happy Earth day to every Living organism on this planet!



My 3rd anniversary on WU today

I also reach my 3rd anniversary on Wundergound on this day. As trHUrrIXC5MMX for most of the time since April 22, 2011.
I remember very well the first comment I made on the main blog, I didn't expect to remain for long on the site since I was not very interested on the material being discussed nor the public input to the information revealed.
3 years have gone by and I'm still here looking ahead to complete many more.

--

Update: April 24 6:20 PM

More cold!
Another freezing morning tomorrow following this warmth and windy day... red flag warnings remain in effect until 10 PM tonight.
We may drop down to around freezing tomorrow morning.

Lol Max.

Some vacation years ago we waited for like an hour because the traffic light caused a massive line to form behind it. It would be like a 9-10 minute long red, then a 30 sec green, then 10 more minutes of red.

Just throwing a random question to you
How long would it take for you to wait for a light that just turned red to go green again on the road?

I'll say there is an average of 2 minutes.
What if I say OVER 9 minutes???

Here is what happened here in Stamford near the beach on Shippan Ave.

Initially we took this street about 15 minutes before we returned through again, there was some road work with police around at the intersection where there is a Shoprite store.

15 minutes after we returned by and the workers were leaving, we got to the intersection and waited for the red light we saw from far away.
1 minute goes by, since there were two lanes going the same way and 2 others going the opposite way, a car comes and stops waiting to turn right, us left. There was a "no turn on red sign".

5 minutes to by when I noticed our wait was becoming a little longer than it should have been. I was seating in the back when I told mom if she realized ever since we saw the right was always red and it's been over 5 minutes.

By the 7th minute:

Me: Mom?
Her: What?
Me: Um, for how longer are we going on wait here? Those cars on the other street just keep going and us with a bunch of cars behind waiting for nothing really. This light is not working properly.
Mom: Hmm, yeah maybe these guys forgot to program back the switching.

I had my window down so did the car next to us. There were two guys and a girl seating in the back. Both of us wee he first on line waiting for the darn light.

Me: Just go, it's nearly 9 minutes waiting here.
Mom: What, you pay the ticket they give you!
Me: Obviously you can appeal it!
Mom: I'm driving, you keep quiet!

The dudes in the other car were laughing at us arguing.
I clearly heard someone say " that dumb kid arguing with mommy about the red light"

Me: Hey, so... what's funny?
Both dudes keep laughing

Me: I heard what either one of you said about me ok!
Them: what?
Me: you were laughing at me and what do you thing you all are doing.. Taking a sunbath there? Now who sounds stupid?
Them: --- all quiet---

Shortly afterwards mom just hits the gas and leaves carelessly.
Me: yeah mom.., it's what I thought.

We left and I looked back they were still waiting.

from globalnews.ca

VANCOUVER – A 6.7 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Port Hardy on Vancouver Island, according to the United States Geological Survey.

It struck at 8:10 p.m. PDT and the epicentre was located about 91 km south off the coast, at a depth of 23 km.

Residents in Port Hardy said the ground shook for about 35 to 40 seconds during the preliminary earthquake. Groceries were knocked off the shelves at the local Overwaitea store.

People are saying they felt it as far away as Langley and Kelowna.


Earthquakes Canada is reporting the earthquake was a 5.9 magnitude.

The National Weather Service says there is no risk of a tsunami.

However, the USGS says to expect aftershocks. Two aftershocks, magnitude 5.0 and 4.2 struck the same region about half an hour later. These secondary shockwaves are usually less violent than the main quake but can be strong enough to do additional damage to weakened structures and can occur in the first hours, days, weeks, or even months after the earthquake.

Simon Fraser University Geologist Brent Ward said this was quite a large earthquake. “Very lucky that it’s off the coast and it’s not that close to high population centres,” he said. “”Because this is actually bigger than one of the earthquakes that hit Christchurch in New Zealand and that caused extensive damage.”

“This was quite shallow.”

Ward said he is not surprised many people across the Lower Mainland could feel the shaking. “In certain situations where people are living or on top of thick, soft, sediments, the earthquake waves actually become stronger so I would expect that people in Richmond, Delta, parts of Langely, where they’re on the thick, Fraser River sediments, would feel the earthquake, whereas someone like me, whose on sort of a bedrock area with thin sediments, I didn’t feel anything.”

Global BC anchor Sophie Lui felt it in downtown Vancouver. “I was sitting on my couch and I heard my vertical blinds shaking,” she said. “And thought at first that maybe the rain had started, but they kept shaking and I looked back and my chandelier or light fixture was shaking as well. And then I realized that the shaking kept going and kept going and I thought ‘ok I think we’re going through this again.’”

She said she did not feel the building shaking too much, but it did last about 20 to 30 seconds.

“Most people around Vancouver who felt it seemed to be up high in high rises,” she said.

We will update this post with more information when it becomes available.

Any damage reports from that quake, Max? 6.7 is pretty strong, and I think the Vancouver area is pretty populated.

Thanks Larry.

I take my time cleaning it. Had to buy 2 set covers for the passenger seat in front and my driving seat.
I can't have an accidental spill of anything on those new comfy cushiony seats.

You know what Im talking about.
