Another sign


In the Midwest.

Our strange year continues. . .

A moderate earthquake struck near OKC last week sending tremors as far north as Kansas City.  I didn't feel the actual quake, but those who did said:

I thought the dog was hitting the bed.
It felt like an animal was stuck in the chair trying to get out.
I didn't realize what it was until I heard the glass clinking.
It made me feel ill.

There is a little debate at the time on whether some of the new fracking (yes, I am a BSG fan, but this has to do with releasing high pressure water to fracture oil and gas from shale) may be at cause in Oklahoma and Kansas.

From the US Geological Service:

Monday, as I was half falling asleep, the chair began to move.  I thought our large dog hit it, wanting petted.  Then I heard a large glass wine decanter on our china hutch clink.  This was an aftershock to Saturday night's quake, but the first time I've experienced it.
