Before leaving for Bishop, CA, our final days in Lake Havasu City were relaxing.

CALIFORNIA HEAT

While our relatives back in the Midwest brave the seasonal Spring storms, we’re suffering through an unseasonal heat wave. When we arrived mid-April, temperature high/lows were in the 60s/40s. Then a switch was flipped, and temps climbed to 80s/60s.

CALIFORNIA COVID

Bishop is in Inyo County which currently has a low COVID-19 infection rate, especially when compared to the surrounding counties.

That’s good because in Inyo County’s 10,000 square miles there are only two hospitals with under a dozen intensive care beds. We think about this things now.

CALIFORNIA EARTHQUAKE

At 5:10 am today we woke up suddenly as our over 31,000 pound motorhome swayed as if it had been hit by a violent wind gust.

It was a magnitude 3.9 earthquake located about a mile away (USGS Data).

Our First Earthquake

 

WHAT’S THAT IN THE SKY?
