If I work like a dog around the house for a couple of days and actually manage to get some overdue stuff done, I should be good to go up north to open up our summer camp by Tuesday or Wednesday.

And that really is one of my favorite things. A chainsaw is usually needed to clear the access road, but once that is done all that is left to do is unlock the door, sweep the place clean, crack a beer and start a roaring fire.

Until it gets cold again, if I'm not here, it means I'm hiding out up there

I hear ya, I never seem to be able to leave work early or even on time....

Sounds like a great way to unwind......enjoy!

Every time you change your avatar I wonder who I'm talking to.

I'm hoping to get mine mid July.

Austin ... I just have written you that in BG we have not tornadoes .... and next day there were several (the photo is not mine) ... but the scale of it is not like these in USA - you can see it on the photo below ... In the weekend there was an earthquake in the East-Northern part of the country - 4,5 level according to Richter scale. North in Romania there is big crack in the earth - it is one of the main places of earthquakes in our region.
We are placed near one of the great cracks - Mediterranean, Kavkaz, Himalaya - east to Japan ...

I don't change it that often. When I do it's usually related to a change in the weather.

Which by the way is not being very cooperative for my vacancy!

Austin … on the photo below you can see the tectonic plates in the world ant their interactions. I have pointed BG in red letters. It can be seen, that we are relatively close to the black line along the north shore of Africa. This crack has an influence on our area, but its strongest effect is on Sicilia, Italy, Greece, Turk, north African shore. Along this line you can find out several vulcans – Vesuvius, Etna, Santoriny (in Aegean Sea – a history one).

You can see the complicated situation in Japan, where 4 tectonic plates are interacting each other.

The local crack influencing on us is placed approx 450 km North-East from my town – it is in Vrancha Mountains (in Romania). It is a local epicenter of earthquakes, unfortunately deep in the earth, so seismic waves affect strongly a larger area including BG.

In the beginning of March 1977 there was a powerful shock in the same place. In this moment I was in the strongly influenced area – Rousse town at Danube river, I was in the cinema. It was awful, I succeeded to jump quickly just behind a column, so running people did not beat me down. I have never known how loud the women are able to scream …. I was the last one leaving the building. On the streets there were bricks from the broken chimneys, several people were injured badly, 5-6 were killed.

Another local, but significant crack is along the north shore of Turkey (east from us). Last decades they had several very strong earthquakes.

In BG we go have 4-5 local epicenters, usually each 200 year - a strong earthquake (6-7 deg of the Richter scale) is possible. But it has only restricted local effect.

Usually people do not know, but … for example … earthquake having a magnitude of 7,2 deg (according Richter scale) is 10 000 times stronger than one of 7,6 deg. So, the number behind the comma is of great significance.
