Upside is with all the earthquakes we've been having lately, when I can't sleep I get more time on oldgas.
Just had a 4.7 epicenter was 2 miles east of my house, this is getting ridiculous I don't know how you guys on the West Coast deal with it.

Wow, I can't imagine having a globe display under constant earthquake conditions. How frequent are they for you?

The weather app that I use every day shows the earthquake activity and the activity out there in Oklahoma lately is really amazing. We are located about halfway between you and the New Madrid fault in eastern Missouri so I wonder how long it's going to be before we start feeling them. No fracking in our area though. I'm not a real believer that that's the problem in Oklahoma but I know that's what a lot of people are blaming it on. With oil production so low I wouldn't think the activity would be near what it was a year or two ago. At least I finally got all my globes battened down so unless one brings the shop down, but I should be ok....GB

I hear stories about that fault and it sounds like if it ever lets go it will be a bad one.

No it's all man-made here "fracking" has nothing to do with it, the tree huggers are all up in arms with fracking because of the chemicals they pump down the well at completion. ( and to be honest they might be right, hope not) It's the salt water injection that is causing the trouble. the last big oil finds around here have a ton of salt water with it, the water gets separated off and put in a injection well at a lower formation. back in the old days this water had to be hauled off by trucks from the well location which is costly, time consuming and very limiting on the volume you can handle. Now there are pipelines running from every well directly to the injection site flowing 24/7 and with the horizontal wells an unbelievable amount of water is generated, hence the problem. up until now was just kind of a nuisance, spooky at first but tolerable but this one last night was a different ball game. not going to lie it worried me, I just can't imagine what a 6,7 or 8 would be like.
Hope to never find out.

You guys can keep your earthquakes, bugs the size of basketballs, and nasty mean snakes. I can shovel the snow, LOL

Seriously, I have never been in a quake, it does not sound like a good time to me. Be safe!

Hey Jay,

I know the feeling, I've been staying in San Ramon California this last month. The fault here has been active and is just settled down maybe a week ago. I'm about half mile from epicenter. There small quakes, less than 4.0, but was getting multiples per day. Funny how you get used to them, I find them interesting to be honest as long as they stay small! Interesting how they differ, sometimes it's liked getting shoved by someone, other times it's like a rolling sensation, almost makes you feel dizzy.
