      LMAO! Don't forget Joe, I'm originally from Ohio - the land of tornados, blizzards and floods, all of which I've been through numerous times. Earthquakes are a new experience for me.

        Me, too... but then, I'm only a few hundred miles from the New Madrid Fault, which doesn't move much, but when it does all Hades breaks loose, so...

          OT--Ever hear of Carl Sandburg? How about Ben Hecht?

          In the very old days, these two worked for The Chicago Daily News. On Saturdays, the Daily News printed their weekend edition, they had no Sunday paper. On Saturdays, it is very slow in the newsroom. So, Mr. Sandburg and Mr. Hecht took a photographer to North Avenue Beach. They dug a trench, and had the photographer take a picture of it.

          With a photo in the paper, they wrote about the earthquake that hit Chicago over the weekend.

            I'm joking with you. They get my attention believe me. Tornados would scare the hell out of me.

                Agreed....because of my family living all over the state, I have been in the primary areas of Loma Prieta, Landers/Big Bear, Northridge in 1994, was in Northridge in 1999 when that 7.0 hit outside Barstow in the middle of the night....

                I think one is going to go on the Hayward Fault soon, when it does....

                  I remember an earthquake hitting Indy a long time ago. I was at my in-law's house so I'm guessing it was around the late 80s.

                    IIRC it was in the summer of '87. I was at Butler going to summer school when we thought there was a natural gas explosion or something. After a while, we learned that it was an earthquake. While not too large, it shook up everything in my room. I had these huge cabinets that set on the ground, and they were moving up and down.

                      Ok -

                      I'll admit it, I'm a wuss. That 2.8 (later upgraded to a 3.0) I reported in my first post was nothing.

                      Since then, we've been experiencing an "earthquake swarm" that has generated several hundred quakes. Most are located ~4.7 miles from my house, but several have been as close as 1.5 miles (luckily those were small ones). The intensity and the power of the quakes have increased and we're seeing 3.0 to 3.5's. Now it's turned into a game, we feel a quake and try to guess what magnitude it was. Tonight, we had a 4.7 that really got our attention.

                      After my wife and I picked up all the stuff knocked off the shelves, she blamed it on me:

                      "It's all your fault".
                      "What do you mean?".
                      "Don't you remember what you said when I went to bed?".
                      "No".
                      "Sleep tight and don't let the earthquakes bite".


                      The reason I said that is because we have had ~100 quakes in the past 24 hours. Most were small, but several were enough to get your attention.

                      BTW - As I'm posting this, the house just shook again.
