Oh what a night: coyotes in my yard & a ny earthquake

I’m a bit of a night owl. I’m tired but wife aeake at 2am. And, what a night it has been.

First off, we haven’t seen the resident groundhog. We are afraid that the fox ate him.

Second, we heard a terrifying cry from an animal. I looked out back to my yard that is up against a nature preserve and saw a coyote. As I stared at it, I heard a continuous screeching. A cry. Sounded like a hurt animal. I wanted to run out and help the distressed creature. However, I remembered that one should avoid coyotes. I most certainly did not want my dogs to head out to the yard and have a coyote encounter. I myself became distressed at the crying sounds. Was it a wounded animal? I banged on my window, and the coyote moved on. But the crying sounds continued until they stopped. I think I’m traumatized by this.

Then, at around 1:50am, while watching a Jennifer Garner show on Apple tv, I heard a deep rumble similar to what I have experienced in California. I immediately felt ot was am earthquake. A mild one. But at 2am, I did not secure my safety as taught back in California. Sigh.

I immediately went on Twitter to see if others experienced something similar. Sure enough, a few of us night owls started reporting an earthquake. I love Twitter just for that reason. I hadn’t imagined the rumble.

Oh, what a night. At some point, I must sleep. But when? According to the Beastie Boys, no sleep till Brooklyn.
