    Interesting. Even back when I was still in High School (oil lamps for lighting were just coming into vogue) it was known that after shocks could be stronger than the original earthquake.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Just had a 4.5 shaker centered here in Barstow. My most vulnerable loved ones are safe so far. My friends are still checking in on FB...

    Well.... I see I completely overlooked the July 6 quake at 8:19 pm. I rode that one out for 20 seconds at church with the littles in the nursery. We put the children under the little table while the room rocked and rolled. Kids weren't scared at the time but some did cry with their adults when we evacuated.

    Interestingly enough this one also happened on a Friday Night.

    We had a couple of return visits from the Ridgecrest area yesterday and today. Didn't feel the one yesterday; tonight definitely. We were in the middle of an online class and everybody kind just waited it out. A little jolt, then back and forth a bit then stopped.

    2020 continues.
