Earthquakes

I’ve made it back to my blog after another hiatus.  I missed hurricane season here in PR by coming back after September, but we’ve had an earthquake outbreak.  There have been aftershocks every few hours for the past two weeks, but the large earthquakes seem to have died down.  People in the south part of …
