...not much else to say. I like stuff like that, just my hills rollin' around and doin' what they like to do. Laughing

Hopefully it's done, a 5.0+ and I'm gonna have to start tackin' stuff to the walls and move things off the shelf.

As long as no tins get dented all should be fine.

Nope, a pipe rack on top of a weird boom box I use for tape loops might eat sh*t, but I have nowhere to put it. Neutral Meh, pipes are tough.

I don't know where you hail, DnB, but folks in Sacramento were apparently feeling it pretty good.

Auburn must be on solid ground, or highly damped anyway, because we never feel a quake here. Have fun Kyle. Laughing

I was looking at aerial maps of the area where the epicenter is, and my house is on two (unproven) major fault lines that directly intersect where I am. There's a lot more high-level granite and "shelf" on this side of the Sierras, and Auburn is on a pretty eroded side of the mountain range. My father, by contrast, lives in the foothills below Tahoe, and he never feels them either--probably for the same reason. The Truckee Meadows (Reno) is a small valley in a sink, and for some reason, a lot of the foothills (on either side) tend to dampen vibration. Yet if you're in the valley itself (Sacramento/central Reno) people seem to feel it more. There's probably some geologist that could say exactly why, I can't.

It was fun, though, a kind of upward "snap" was felt by me, followed by a very side-to-side motion... probably P Waves followed by Love Waves (serious term)...

I love the earth and its powerful dynamics. Cool

Maybe it's because I look at rocks and rock structure so much. If you think little shakers make you nervous, appreciate how calm everything is right now. This is a planet practically in a coma compare to the continuous volcanic episodes that have happened as recently as 5 - 10 million years ago.
