Good 51º scattered clouds morning.
Yesterday started gloomy and drizzly on and off in the morning.....
We stayed cloudy and temps in the 50ºs and 60ºs. While my friend Vivia in Brooklyn NY said there temp felt like 90º, and it was 87º. We got some sun and it ended up being a really nice comfortable day.
Turkeys were out and showing off.....

Picture of the Day ... super odd buildings...this is a habitat house in Canada...
Habitat 67 is a model community and housing complex in Montreal, Canada, designed by Israeli–Canadian architect Moshe Safdie. It comprises 354 identical, prefabricated concrete forms arranged in various combinations, reaching up to 12 stories in height. Together these units create 146 residences of varying sizes and configurations, each formed from one to eight linked concrete units. The complex originally contained 158 apartments but several apartments have since been joined to create larger units, reducing the total number. Each unit is connected to at least one private terrace, which can range from approximately 225 to 1,000 sq ft.
Interesting about the 1960 Chile earthquake...
On May 22, 1960, the most powerful earthquake in recorded history—magnitude 9.5—struck southern Chile. The rupture zone stretched almost 621 miles along the country’s coast. The event was named after the city most affected by the quake, Valdivia.
The Valdivia earthquake left 2 million people homeless, injured at least 3,000, and killed approximately 1,655. The tremor caused localised tsunamis that severely battered the Chilean coast, with waves up to 82 ft. The main tsunami raced across the Pacific Ocean and devastated Hilo, Hawaii. Waves as high as 35 ft were recorded 6,200 miles from the epicenter, and as far away as Japan and the Philippines.
