Question of the Day

The earth moved in Canada yesterday. Apparently there’s a fault line along the Ottawa River; who knew?

Have you ever been in an earthquake?

I briefly lived in California in a small town in the San Jacinto mountains, which lies on the De Anza fault. It’s about 100 miles east of Los Angeles. We got little tremors all the time, it seemed, but nothing major. Still, the feeling and even the noise — once it sounded like a thunderclap — was unsettling.
