Well about 35 miles away or so. Just a little shaker, didn't even wake the little one up!
Noop. I just checked the USGS. It was probably one of your BK diner loving neighbors falling off the shitter.
Only thing that size was in Cali.

California-Nevada Fault Maps
We just had another one 3.6 about one mile from Berkeley. That's three in a week on the Hayward fault. The Hayward fault is the one the geologist have been warning us about. If it goes it will be big, killing many and causing billions of dollars in damage.
I am a native Californian and don't spend a lot of time thinking about earthquakes; however, I think I shall spend some time today adding water and more batteries to the emergency supplies. This much activity is very unusual.
Very good idea.
Glad all is well!
Yep, that was the one!
Toadly went a-courtin' aha...
How animals predict earthquakes
1 December 2011 - Can pond-dwelling animals pick up pre-earthquake signals?
Mebbe the rain loosens up the soil...
Researchers say cyclones could cause earthquakes
Sat, Dec 10, 2011 - US researchers said on Thursday they have found evidence that tropical cyclones in Haiti and Taiwan were followed by earthquakes, suggesting that heavy rains and landslides may unleash temblors.
Ocean noise torments sea mammals: study
Sat, Dec 10, 2011 - With the constant churn of freighter propellers, the percussive thump of oil and gas exploration and the underwater din of military testing, ocean noise levels have become unbearable for some sea mammals.
Trying to equate surface effects with triggering seismic events miles deep is ridiculous. The Great Lakes region is STILL isostatically rebounding from the last continental ice sheet.
The whole area is rising at the rate of about an inch per year. Where are all those earthquakes?
This is yet another of that incompetent correlation equals causation crap that has gotten the climatologists in so much hot water.
