Okay, let's get one thing straight. It's not that I eat one kind of soup. I don't like soup. It's just that I make great soup, because I don't like
it. I was making gravy, and soup was a byproduct. The one that I ate too much of was chicken veggie. I made more last night, leek and potato and my
kid loved it.
I wish I had been watching closer the weather that day. But thanks, for adding that there was a storm to south. Was there a storm the week or so
before that one is So Cal. With the droughts, I forget it does rain there and storms shoot through. I'm not really counting the second swarm as the
beginning of this activity. But I don't count anything out completely. It could have started in the south from whatever reason, then the first
activity primes the stress of the second which is triggered by pressure. Also, don't forget wave action. Ocean waves can show up on graphs. I believe
a storm can batter a coastline with waves, and that this can trigger earthquakes. It's combinations of things. And they can vary in order. This is why
earthquakes are so hard to predict. There are many, many factors with differing percentages and ratio in the sequence of events.
And I don't do that website mentioned, too many non events. I stick to simple maps and cross reference as much as I can with graphs and reports.
Oh, and gravy, I made my son poutine. Homemade gravy, fresh cut fries, and real cheese curds.
He said it was the best.
Had to add, because I was rereading Muzzy's stuff on Japan. I don't comment on Japan much because Muzzy's already taking care of it and I'm lazy. But,
from his observations, it seems he is seeming a call response as well. We've discussed this seeming back and forth before, when I think, we were
looking a Nevada and the differing swarms. Wait, now I remember. It's stopped now for the most part, but, Northern Nevada and Idaho were doing the
back and forth as well.
It's either there is some sort of remote triggering, or we're just imagining things...
Had to add more. I just checked the small ones. Idaho had two small ones near Challis. I thought, hey, the North end of Nevada is quiet. I had to
check how quiet. Seven days without any earthquake. This is a place that had been rocking for over a year. Now she's quiet. So, that's different. Does
that mean the North Swarm is over... There may be tiny ones off and on. But the swarm looks dormant. And the rest of Nevada is still low. However,
Yellowstone, after having been kinda quiet for a long while, is now slightly noisy, and at constant low hum.
Back to Nevada for a minute. Over the last 30 days, Northern Nevada has only managed two over 2.5M and both of them were about a month ago.
I'm going to call it over. Unless of it starts back up before I finish this sentence, and makes me a liar.
I don't like being me. Can someone else do it for awhile? I couldn't let it go. I had to go back and reread the article I posted about the Salton
Duh, when I went back to the google maps and flew around, I found them, and the geothermal plant. Duh. Who is to say, that they haven't been ones
responsible for the southern earthquake swarm. It's right under the plant. If they're pumping water down, then they could have off the first swarm
which then trigger the others. The more I try to pin the real source, the more I can't figure which is the chicken and which is the egg.
I'm laughing. How did I miss the fact there's a pump there? I've been railing and ranting about man earthquakes for too long. Now, are they going to
set off the San Andres by pumping water into the ground? Why not? Injection and thermal plants cause earthquakes.
Earthquakes can relieve stress, as it loads stress somewhere else. Where's the stress going that is generate under the Salton?
Help me. Okay, we a desert. And we have a mistake of an inland lake, due to an engineering mistake. We have people living in the Valley, and farming.
So, they are pumping water up from the aquifer. They're draining that sucker dry. Also, at the same time, they are pumping water down. Water is
travelling in different directions under the ground. Of course they're at different depths and as such, may not interact directly. However, I'm more
concerned about the differing pressures at each level and migration.
Are they trying to set off the San Andres? Did no one think, "Hey, this isn't a good idea!" There's a volcano, under super thin crust, at the terminal
end of a giant fault. I guess they're not worried.
