Coriolis Effect

7/01/22 Ok, I’m lost. Well, am somewhere.

I remember something learned from school science light years ago: The Coriolis Effect. Water either drains clockwise or counter clock-wise. You can tell if you are on the Western Slope or Eastern Slope by the water’s spin…..

Don’t have water to spare to determine physics effect. Pity.

I felt like water: going down the drain. Trying to NOT  panic as night falls and crepuscular critters come out…lost is a
First World fear…….where am I?
