Did You Feel It?

That's the common question around here. Which is a good indication that the earthquake wasn't that bad where we are.

But we're 170 miles from the epicenter. So it must be pretty rough up there. Hope you guys up that way are ok. TV is showing signs of a fire in Ridgecrest.

Yesterday it was a 6.4. Today at 8:19 pm our time they think it's a 6.9 to 7.1. This one sure felt bigger than yesterday. My wife lost some stuff off the shelves at work today, but nothing yesterday.

Edit -looks like they're currently calling it a 7.1.

Photos found online. Near Trona Ca after yesterday's quake:

Be safe. We have hurricanes you have quakes. At least with a cane you can see it coming. The biggest I ever felt while attending UCI was a 3. That was enough. Exit stage East.

I can't say I miss those wake ups. Landers and Northridge and Whittier Narrows? were the big ones I recall getting my butt jolted out into a doorway for.

I'm with you; I'll take a Hurricane over an earthquake or tornado any day.

When I was fourteen years old, I was amazed at how unintelligent my father was. By the time I turned twenty-one, I was astounded at how much he had learned in the last seven years

Man, growing up in the 80s and 90s you kind of get used to it. Honestly, there is a bigger one coming, unfortunately.

Yep!! I'll just stay where I'm at. We got some skeeters and ticks, maybe an occasional tornado, but most of you other people have poisonous snakes, poisonous spiders, scorpions, hurricanes, earthquakes, stupid emission laws etc. I ain't goin' nowhere. By the way the boys are right! That road looks pretty dang nice. Our roads here look like that after their first winter.

Damage to the road is minimal. It isn't about the condition of the road. It's that offset left to right. Over several miles either side of the road & down into the ground. It just shows the ground movement easier when it splits a painted line. The amount of shaking that happens when those pieces of earth slide against each other is where it gets ugly. That misalignment is from the smaller quake.

On a sad note, the first possible death was reported today. A man about 100 miles away was killed when his Jeep fell on him. No one was there to see it happen, so it might have been coincidental, but he had not been seen since the day of the quake. Details in link below.

Heads up, the photo is blurred, but still might be disturbing to some. It looks like a high lift jack & cinder block were involved.

Several years ago I worked for a guy who had bought a mountain cabin with a bad foundation. He was a retired fireman who had gone into construction. He had it up on jacks but had not yet demoed the old foundation. He was under there when a quake knocked it off the jacks & back down onto the old foundation. He was a pretty tough old bird, but he went pale while telling the story.

We were celebrating the birthday of my sister in law when the 6.5 magnitude earthquake occurred. It was really scary. The next day the intensity was stronger. We run out of the house with our kids. It was quite traumatic.

A friend of mine recently moved up to Michigan from Ohio. I'm amazed how many dirt roads are up there. Even in affluent neighborhoods like Rochester Hills and Birmingham, there's dirt roads with million dollar homes on them. Its quite the shock coming from Ohio where nearly every road is paved, even the crappy little farm roads.

I agree.

To be fair when has it not lol? There's always something the media has us worrying about, after all fear sells. It was the Nazis, the red scare, the soviets, China and now its "global warming". In 10 years it'll be something else be it "super bugs" like ebola or another great depression.

Well... no matter what the disaster du jour is, I like to think I'll be at least somewhat prepared with a solid running and fully capable FULL SIZE BRONCO. While everyone will be stuck on the road in their electric prius, we'll be driving right on past 'em, on the road side, over the telephone roads or potentially without any sort of road at all... we'll keep movin' and groovin' in our Ford bug-out MPV.

At least until I run out of gas and other cars to slurp it from.

Too bad about the dude under the Jeep but that’s Darwin at work - you couldn’t pay me to get under a highlifted vehicle.

Yes, those are good roads in Maine as well.
