Mother Nature - Busy Body

In January Machu Picchu in Peru was flooded by torrential rains and Haiti was rocked by a catastrophic earthquake.

In February an 8.8 quake hit Chile.

In March damaging sand storms swept across China burying everything in sand and rendering the air quality dangerous.

In April the Baja California, Mexico rumbled under the 7.2 quake and two days later Indonesia was hit by a 7.7 magnitude quake and a few minor tsunamis.

And if you haven't heard, a few volcanoes in Iceland have erupted creating massive ash plumes that are choking all air travel - and the people on the ground.

Mother Nature has been a real busy body these days. I wonder if she is trying to tell us something ....

And if she is, will we listen?

  1. If we look back through history I think there have always been these happenings though haven't there? our awareness of our misuse of the earth has grown with out a doubt.The worlds (growing) population is the the biggest concern I think.
    We just went to an Earth Day celebration, it's always a good feeling to see so many people trying to do their part.
