at least it wasn't a big one! Hope you have a peaceful rest of the day. I'll catch up with you all in about 8 or 9 hours or so.
And hi also to JP2100! Welcome to ATS and thanks for posting your comments here!
Seeing as you and berkeleygal are so geographically close you'll doubtless have some notes to share.
Anywhoo, I'm outta here. Wife is becoming too much of an ATS widow and besides which it's somehow after midnight again...

May I pipe in?
I have been looking at this Texas quake,and there is a feature on there just south of where the quake was.
I was using google maps,then I switched to bing maps.
I will provide a link.
If you switch from aerial view to bird's eye view,it disappears.
Here it is in Google Earth.
What is it,a dried up pond??edit on 20-10-2011 by kdog1982 because: (no reason given)

Just saw the quake, had a meeting all day out of town, just got home. I have family members that work in that area who are landmen that lease land from land owners to the natural gas companies. That area is blowing up because of the eagleford shale. They are leasing everything. Injection wells are going up everywhere. The earthquake was caused by fracking. My wife works there, my brother in law works there, my father in law works there my best friend works there. Karnes, Dewitt, and all of the surrounding counties are being leased for thousands of dollars per acre. On a side note, about 30 miles from there is Yorktown. I was there last sat. As I crossed a bridge I noticed all of the fish were dead, there were bubbles coming out of the water, and there was a strong sulfur smell in the air.
