We don't get earthquakes very often up here, though there are faults capable of producing some big ones. I just hope this one wasn't a fore-shock to something much bigger. It's no time of year to have something else that would knock the power out. It's enough that we have to put up with storms doing it. Plus I want my chiropractic head-yanking to take place on re-schedule next Tuesday. Anything that interfered with that would leave me majorly pissed.
24 hours is the conventional period cited by seismologists during which a larger earthquake than one that turned out to be a fore-shock remains very likely. In other words, if it doesn't happen by four o'clock Saturday morning, it probably won't happen at all. OK, nobody stamp your feet until Saturday morning! Thank you.
