Letter: Update: You can relax; the ground is not sinking

Not long ago, The Signal published my letter warning its readers that the ground in Santa Clarita is sinking (“We must act quickly; the ground is sinking,” July 3).

There was no doubt in my mind that is was sinking because whenever I had to bend down to pick something up it was almost impossible to reach.

However, a friend, upon seeing my letter suggested that it was not the ground that was changing, but my body.

“You’re no kid, you know,” he said, “and at your age, your body changes.”

Well, I want to assure your readers that, indeed, the ground is not sinking. 

I checked, and sure enough — my arms are getting shorter.
