Now it's reported as 4.7 near Edwards AFB in the desert.

Felt closer.

And bigger.

You should be OK. Gaia is saving the big one to coincide with the
universal SoCal fire scheduled for this fall.

Had a small quake north of Truckee Saturday - didn't even feel it. But
you'd be surprised by how many people live around here who don't know
Lake Tahoe is the result of an earthquake subsidence zone...

Nope. I don't think I feel anything less than a 4.5, if that.

Hmph. So I guess I don't feel anything less than 5.0 :-( Oh ****,
let's just say 6.0... If nothing falls down, it wasn't an earthquake.

Now USGS has corrected the estimate: 5.2 off northern Baja. Closer and
bigger.

Huh? I see a 5.1 56 miles SW of Imperial Beach at 3:28 today. (You did
mail in your estimated tax payment, didn't you?) Where is Imperial
Beach?

Is that the same as Imperial Beach? Jeez, and these are the people
we're expected to believe when they tell us there's going to be a quake
before September 5?

Down in the lower left corner. It is the southwesternmost city in the
continental USA.

You should be OK. Gaia is saving the big one to coincide with the
universal SoCal fire scheduled for this fall.


There's not much brush left to burn around here. I guess a big fire could
come down directly from the north, but it would have to burn through about
two miles of urban neighborhoods to get to our house from that direction.

The rats that moved through the neighborhood after the fire seem to have
moved on (or been eaten by cats, like the kitty that spent a few nights in
our garage and left a rat-head on the floor one morning as payment for
feeding him). I have heard owls recently on quiet nights, so I put an
owl-nest box up in the eaves on the quieter, cooler side of the house. I
guess I should go check to see if it shook down.
