At about 3:36am, central Italy was struck with an awful earthquake. Truly devastating for people near the epicenter.
We are about an hour and a half away, and were thankfully spared the damage. But our little Buttercup did her best to warn us… twice. About five seconds before the shaking started, she jumped out of bed, ran around, and barked loudly. She did this for the main quake, and then repeated it an hour later for the main aftershock.
Her new nickname is “Seismo” and she’s just plum tuckered out from being the early-warning sensor for us. Good job, Buttercup er Seismo!!
