guess who had an earthquake?
and. . . guess who didn't notice it AGAIN -- yes, moi! Someone emailed me to let me know it happened. I have not even turned on the news in days. Of course it was only a 4.1 again, and the epicenter was a ways away from here. All these small quakes are good for releasing tension in the New Madrid fault, so I can be a little relieved about that. But they are unpleasant reminders that we're living on a fault line, though not as active as the San Andreas in California (strike-slip fault info here). Notice how we name our earthquake zones after Hispanic places? Seems racist to me.
