That's a lot of literal shaking and we aren't even in 2020!

Hope you and your loved ones are safe.

So there was a bit more to my day than I may have previously implied. Suffice to say that I was close enough to the 7.1 to see the fault open up. For that (and a bit of story that went with it), I was awarded a trophy with the inscription, "First Place. 7.1 Run For Your Life Sprint".

Thanks. Yeah, life has been a bit of a blur lately. On the plus side, it looks like I get to provide design input into a new facility (assuming the money exists like they're saying it will).

Oh, and I see they're saying we're up over 80,000 aftershocks now.

I'm assuming this was the Ridgecrest ones? Seeing those pictures makes me miss California until I realize how much of a crap day that must have been. Glad you're safe man.

Yes.

For fun.... Compare Vera's location (see link below) with the fault lines for both the 6.4 and the 7.1 quakes.
