You know, I lived in California for a couple of years in the early 2000s and maybe experienced one or two very small earthquakes. Nothing “earth shattering”. So, imagine my surprise to be woken up this morning by an earthquake of a magnitude of 3.9 with an epicenter maybe 3 miles west of where I live. The sucker lasted a good 7 seconds. I really thought it was a snow plow from last night’s blizzard, but it felt more like the snow plow was scraping against the house. Wow! Snow in the west coast, earthquakes in the midwest. The world is turning upside down, huh?
