Earthshake!

Another one.

Magnitude 4.1 - local magnitude (ML)
Time Tuesday, May 19, 2009 at 3:49:11 PM (PDT)
Tuesday, May 19, 2009 at 22:49:11 (UTC)
Distance from Hawthorne, CA - 2 km (1 miles) NE (44 degrees)
Lennox, CA - 3 km (2 miles) ESE (107 degrees)
Inglewood, CA - 3 km (2 miles) SSE (152 degrees)
Westmont, CA - 3 km (2 miles) WSW (250 degrees)
Los Angeles Civic Center, CA - 16 km (10 miles) SSW (210 degrees)

I just realized that I was watching a special on the Yellowstone Super Volcano on the Science Channel when the quake hit, that amuses me.

At the same time I'm getting wary about all these moderate quakes happening so close together (geographically and timescale). I'm not that worried, I went through the Northridge Quake so I know what a big one is like. Fucking scary as hell but since there's nothing I can do about it I won't worry myself.


It's so awesome taking flights up California (a flight to Seattle for example). Some of the flight paths go over the San Andreas Fault which you can see very easily! I'm such a geo nerd :)

We actually have them daily but those are usually little bitties, 2.0 and the such. Lately we've been getting 4.5 and above which are the ones that the non-CA people freak out about. I like them, I find the ones that range from 4.5-5.2 to be fun! I'm like "Oh, another one? Don't worry, the roof won't fall on you!"
Haha, but we are getting a lot lately. It's the Big One! :D

Now I feel a little better for thinking earthquakes are fun.

I'm not the only one! YAY! Since you're a fellow "gawk out the plane window and identify the landmarks" traveler, I know you'll appreciate this photo I took on the way home from Alaska :)

Yosemite National Park! I looked out my window and recognzied it. I asked the flight attendant to verify it and she said we were above that area so I was right! El Capitan is on the lower left and Half Dome is the upper right. :D
