Just hearing about this (http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/24/us/california-earthquake/index.html?hpt=hp_t1http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/24/us/california-earthquake/index.html?hpt=hp_t1). Some damage and injuries, including some serious injuries. Some homes lost to fire.

I drove right through the epicenter last Sunday; and not far from it again, yesterday. I either have good timing or bad, not sure which.

Tough on gas lines. Nasty.

Apparently it's not just tornadoes that target mobile homes. Almost makes me wish I wasn't sitting in one at the moment...

Dana Hunter, whom I've met in person at my Pumpkin Hurl, has a post up at Scientific American: Which Fault's at Fault (http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/rosetta-stones/2014/08/25/south-napa-earthquake-which-faults-at-fault/)? Pretty interesting stuff.

(She also blogs at FreeThoughtBlogs, which is everything CQ is not in terms of politics and religion!)
