Earthquake near Ramona, just a small one

It is not unusual to feel the occasional quake where we live just north east of San Diego. Usually the epicenter is far to the east, near or in the desert. In fact there are small quakes all over California and Nevada all the time. So when I heard the rumble and felt a little shudder about an hour ago, I was quite surprised to find out how close to home this one was.

Red indicates an event in the last hour. This one was a magnatude 2.8 event — pretty mild. I would have slept through it had I been asleep.

Live video of So What

I’ve been digging around on a desktop machine that I don’t use much these days, and came across a bunch of video from So What performances. It will take a while, but eventually all the stuff that doesn’t make us cringe will be online.

Head on over the to Video page and check them out. Let me know what you think. Here’s one to get things started.
