Yeah, 2.3 quakes don't make the news, even up here.

Quarry explosions, if unintentional, might though.

True. And all things considered, there's not a lot of outdoor activity in this part of the world right now.

Another 2.3 Magnitude Quarry Quake/Explosion today.

As this appears to be periodic blasting at a Quarry, I'm not goign to post any more updates on this area, unless there is some requests by people for them to continue.
