    Start dancing to make up for it.

    "Scientists say the “quieter” Earth during protective self-quarantine has reduced the ambient seismic noise. Human activity of all kinds, as we travel and gather and drive around, generates vibrations that distort measurements from finely tuned seismic instruments. In Belgium, scientists report a 30 percent reduction in that amount of ambient human noise since the COVID-19 (coronavirus) lockdown began there."

    The last few weeks have been great for earthworms. Yay for worms!

    I wonder if earth vibrations affect wine making?

    The reduction in ocean traffic has been a boon for whales and other marine animals too. Sonar is awful.

    I hadn't thought of the ocean. I wonder how much it even contributes to vibrations given that they are in water vs land.

    I can't imagine it remained the same with it looking like the walking dead outside in large cities.
