    Natural disasters don't seem to draw the same crowd on Moopy, but to add the woes of the Caribbean and Central American what with Irma, there's now been a major earthquake in Mexico.

    And the fires in LA. It's all very apocalyptic.

    Now Japan's just had a 5.3 earthquake.

    I've never know so many natural disasters in such a short space.

    The huge damage done to places like Barbuda should be an absolute call to arms for Western governments to press big business more and majorly step up their efforts on climate change.

    I'm cribbing from elsewhere but these disasters are only going to get worse, especially in places without the funds or infrastructure to protect themselves. There will be a point where industrial powers either choose between doing something or tacitly accepting ecological genocide.

    Oh God yes you don't want to quote HER. I forgot that you're Mexican (well, allegedly; I've always had you down as a Gants Hill Girl). Were you near it?

    Yes; my building was evacuated though it didn't felt as awful cause I live near the hills but people who live either in the center or nearby tell me it was horrible and felt like a lifetime though it lasted for a couple of minutes.

    RE: Hurricanes.

    For something so FAST they're also FUCKING SLOW

    It feels like it's been going on for ages and yet it's still to hit the US. Hurry up already.

    More people have died in the Mexico earthquake than this storm and yet this still dominates.

    The last hurricane which killed about 40 people, yet over 1,000 died in Asia which got virtually no coverage. I hate the news sometimes.

    I heard that. I guess it was too late for the news after Grenfell once they realised all the dead people were brown, they'd already reported it.

    I need to unsubscribe from news updates from various apps. I've had double figures this morning (multiple from some) advising me Irma was about to hit or beginning to hit the Keys or Florida itself.

    I find it rather fascinating that people live in Florida Keys and that there are bridges all the way until the last island.

    Actually, a bit quicker than I thought. ANYHOO. Tomasz was educated in a local private school to me and was apparently not a bad egg from friends who knew him whilst there. He lived down here with his Aunt or Grandma or someone not his actual Mother, I forget. Mr Sheena has always had this MASSIVE crush on our weather hero and I've always played "mock jealousy"- literally since the day we met. Fast forward to my "hen do" for want of a better word and someone had put together the usual "Mr and Mr" quiz, including a question about who Mr Sheena would like to be on a desert island with. My instant reaction was "Oh, BLOODY TOMASZ SCHAFERNAKER", we all laughed and moved on.

    Except a very good friend of mine who is a nurse happens to know or work with this Aunt or Grandma or someone not his actual Mother and so asked her if he could get Tomasz to do us a wedding card, which she slipped in the pile of cards at the wedding saying nothing. So the morning after the wedding, we undid our cards and there was a card signed by him, talk of a desert island and "seeing us there" and offering hearty congratulations. We laughed, thinking it was one of the girls taking the piss and then we opened another envelope which had been put in the card. And:
