    Earthquakes!

    Woo Hoo Hoo! Three earthquakes last night; one at 5:36 am that was a doozie! Worst one we've had here, at least in my area. I have a set of "Charlie Brown/Lucy" toys (I call them my earthquake detectors) that are designed to sit on the edge of a table, etc. like they were sitting on a dock or ledge with their feet hanging over the side. Both on the floor this morning!
    Have wings, will travel.

    Zoinks!

    The ground moving under you is never a good thing. Hope all is well.

    We had a few when I was stationed in CA. Aftershocks were a bit un-nerving.

    Kept a glass of water on the table to look at. If it wasn't moving then you knew it was just your mind playing tricks on you.

    As long as the New Madrid fault line doesn't shake. That one was a doozy the last time (1811-12) and if it goes again, it will totally devastate much of the midwest. Last time it changed the course of the Mississippi River, to the point it ran backwards for a while; created a lake in Tennessee, and lot of lives where lost, even though that area wasn't heavily populated. It even rang church bells in Montreal.

    Personally, I suspect that all the "fracking" going on has got to have some of this earthquake activity stirred up.
    "For every action, there is an equal and opposite REaction".......
    The I.R.S. must love poor folks, they create more and more every day.

    Yep, all that fracking is coming home to roost.

    Yeah, we're seeing a huge increase in small quakes northwest of us in the area that has a heavy frac activity. The earth shifts enough on its own without fracturing it.

    Reelfoot lake is a great vacation spot

    I was just stationed in the bay area [CA] for their 1989 quake.
    Getting around w/out those main highways was a pain.

    The USAF decided I would crawl around inside the walls and photograph quake damage [one of those 'new guy' jobs - you vets know the first word].

    All I've ever heard the "new guy" referred to is, FNG.

    However, I am not a veteran, or active.

    In this house we call that a "Cat Quake" and we have lots of them... which is why the grandfather clock is attached to the wall with a small chain!

    Have not noticed any "temblors/tremblers" 20 years in this house other than blasting day over at the quarry and those aren't as strong as years ago. (Probably tighter gvmnt regs.)

    I think I'd rather have my house "shook down" than blown away or flooded! Wow, those folks along the MO river....!
