Wow how strange we were just talking about earthquakes in earth sci.
glad all the collections are ok (glad to hear all of our fellow transfans in california are okay)
great, cali people here get a earthquake and i got a tornado last week, anyone get a hurricane?
That's what she said. Heyooooo!
ho ho ho ho ho, tiny. XD
They happen all the time everywhere on the planet (even where you and I are living). It's just that most places it's maybe a category 2. You won't even feel anything more than a 3, and it won't be much more than a semi truck hitting a pot-hole outside your house. Something to remember about earthquakes is that the scale they use to grade the energy they release isn't even growth. A category 4 earthquake is hundreds of thousands of times more powerful (in terms of energy released) than a 3. And a 5 is millions more than a 4. From what I remember of my high school geology class anyway.
Earthquakes aren't measured by "Category", hence the decimal.
If I could remember the proper term I'd use it. But I can't.
I felt the earthquake. I was (sigh) writing the final evaluations for some of my students. The earthquake was, by far, a more-exciting use of time.
You could have said, "that is what we called in where I come from." Maybe I've would have believe ya
Anyone felt the 4.0 on Tuesday? I was at work in Ventura County, so I didn't feel it.
Still, my Ultimate Bumblebee Stands in Robot Mode, untouched by the shakings of my room.
I didn't feel the earthquake yesterday as I was intensely trying to do all my chores at work before I clocked out. I find it strange that most recent earthquakes that I've felt have always been while I'm working.
I've heard of the term, "I'll finish this even if I have to move the Earth" but...
Richter scale, or summat?
Anyway, I felt both of them, being down here with my parents until after BotCon. I never thought I'd have missed the feeling of OMG WHEEEEEEEE D8!
