June 17, 2017 Hey sweeties! Update about what was going on with us.

June 16 and 17, 2017 Important Update

Hey my dear furends! It was a couple of things. First I was just really busy, & then our internet was having problems. Connection would be there, then gone again. Yesterday it was gone completely. And I needed to safe my remaining data for my 2 mobile devices internet. It’s working normally again normally it seems.

The important/serious part of the update comes now
Wednesday night at 8pm, police were suddenly and quietly positioning themselves in my street & neighborhood. No sirens, nothing. Really quiet. No one knew what was up. They told all the people to leave the pubs and restaurants, and leave the area or go into their buildings. The street was eerie & quiet. There were many police cars & the special unit that usually always comes for more serious things was there too. They had the big guns out.

They closed off all the streets around us and put their own police vans and cars into the streets as additional barriers. After they had done all of that, I saw a policeman from the special unit walk with a second one through my street. One was carrying that special bag that gets put over things that are suspected to be explosives. Those bags are able to contain the blast and any shrapnel and things they put into those self made ones to hurt people even more. Then I knew something was wrong. But still, I thought maybe they just found a lone luggage standing around somewhere and people got worried about it and called the police. Things like that happen and of course they always have to assume it might really be dangerous. I really thought it must be something like that.

But the next day (Thursday) I heard that we had an actual terrorist b.mb threat, that was apparently prevented thanks to a person from the middle east, who heard about a plan for this somewhere and called police right away. This might have really prevented something from happening, because police were here so quickly. Maybe the extremists who had planned this thing, where prevented from doing anything thanks to police being here. The attack was apparently planned for around 10pm, but police had already been here at 8pm, after the person had called them about what he heard. It was supposed to be an attack right here in my street. There’s a big church right near me and we had an important Christian holiday. Maybe that’s why.

On Thursday police were there all day too and they were there during the night too apparently. They still had their police vans as a barrier in all streets leading to my neighborhood and my street. Only pedestrians were able to pass. It was also because they didn’t want someone attacking with a car. My church had a lot of people there due to the Christian holiday. Buildings like ours had their entrances protected by a police van right in front of the entrance, and a couple police men. So no suspicious people could get into the buildings & do something in them possibly. There was lots of police all around us. Really a lot! On Friday it seemed it was all back to normal for the most part. They are still patrolling more than they usually do, but life started to be lived again normally. There is an event on the other side of the river (Our building is next to the river) and I saw that they have put their police cars there as barriers again, to prevent anyone from trying to attack with a car again.

Unfortunately I had a migraine on Thursday, and I felt extremely exhausted, because I had to haul stuff with some friends. The last bits of my stuff that a friend had stored for me in their storage room they didn’t need. But they move out and so I had to get my stuff. And I still felt really really exhausted yesterday. So that’s why we weren’t here really.

I am so sorry my dear friends and furends. I really am. I thank you all for your sweet comments. I also thank you all really really so much, for always being so understanding towards my frequent migraines and being offline often because of that.

Murli & I love you allπŸ’•Β Thanks for being such wonderful pals!

  1. Hello Natascha and Murli :)

    Wow, you see these things on the news all the time, but to have it happen in your street must have been really scary. Glad you both are okay though.

    I hope you have a free from migraine day my friend.

    Hugs. Ralph xx <3

    1. Yeah absolutely! That’s the thing… my neighborhood is actually a safe area without crime or anything like that and it’s mainly a residential neighborhood. Other than the church and the festivities there and there are many people visiting this church, especially on holidays. Oh yeah, it’s back to normal now. Police stayed for the whole night and the whole next day and they are patrolling a lot too. But life has gone back to normal thankfully. Lets hope it stays that way. haha, I got her away from the window after I saw the b.mb bag the policeman was carrying. Yeah, she would have watched the whole thing… Curious Murli! πŸ˜„πŸ± Thanks for your comment! Hope your weekend was nice!

    1. Thank you so so much my dear friend! I have so much to tell you! And I will send you sweeties an email tomorrow morning. I have managed to cause myself Eyestrain which is nothing serious at all, it’s just overstrained eyes from doing too much writing and reading on the computer… It’s already lots better tonight and I am sure it’s going to be back to normal tomorrow. The problem is it hurts when I read and write after a few minutes at the moment.

      Austria was an extremely safe country. It was like a paradise. No gangs, no muggings, low crime rates overall and you were able to walk in the middle of the night as a woman or girl without much worry at all. It was wonderful here. But things went downhill in the last two years, like in many other European countries. But England, France, Germany and Sweden are much worse. But we will all end up in the same mess if the politicians won’t try to work something out. The police do an amazing job here. They have been warning again and again for the last two years but it fell on deaf politicians ears.

      Yes I am very much thankful to the man who called the police πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ God bless him!

      You sweeties are always in my thoughts and prayersπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• Murli and I send lots of love and hugs and purrs and nose kisses!

      Will comment on your bloggie tomorrow when my eyes are better. Thank you so very much for your lovely words and for being the understanding friend you are.

  3. Oh Natascha I thought your country was safe; just like Switzerland….
    it seems everywhere there is trouble. Even in Canada altho’ it is not as severe as UK or Germany or France!
    There is so much unrest; so much addiction; so much crime. It scares me when I read about all the bad things happening in the world. I keep praying for a change….
    I am sorry you have eye strain. That IS painful so please rest your eyes. We will be here when you return ok?
    I too have to rest my eyes after some time or else I get nasty headaches. As P SH says “PHOOEY!!”
    <3 Love <3 & ((((hugs))) Sherri-Ellen & ***paw kissesss*** Siddhartha Henry xxxx
