We have had cell phone and wireless internet problems for the last couple of months or so. Has anyone checked into the solar thingies ( I haven't been allowed to sleep yet, not since yesterday morning, so I'm not gonna try and remember the correct terms, just to get slammed with 'they're called....') to see if they are the problem with the phone/internet issues? I know they mentioned last summer that all of this was coming on our local news station. They said solar storms (? memory sucks) would affect the satellites and weather and when combined with the super close moon this spring could affect earthquake and volcanic activity. My brain is fried so I can't remember if there is a connection here or not? lol sorry I can't be of more help.

I understand Robin and Puterman have differing opinions over if the quakes in Japan are somehow effecting the small quakes you guys are having (and both put there points across with the utmost of respect... which is nice to see)

BUT

Has anyone actually compared Japan quakes of 5+ and compared them to when the small quakes are happening. Surely they should be happening at a similar time frame apart - thats if there is any connection.

... or am I just talking complete poop

an observation:
I made a cherry pie yesterday. In baking, the top crust was intact but detached from the sides of the pan. The filling was gooey.
When I took the pie out of the oven-very carefully-my finger slightly bumped one edge.
That little bump rippled under the crust (carried by the cherry goo) and cracked the crust in several places. As the pie cooled more cracks appeared. Every time I moved or touched the pie the crust cracked a bit more.

I know a pie is not the planet. Just observation.

A class in ceramics is an excellent way to learn about clay/water/fire. Thicker clay cracks differently than thinner clay and it all depends on the make up of the clay. Thick porcelain and thick stoneware crack different ways and in diff places when same amount of stress applied.

Another quake-this one in China

This quake is very important. If you remember my first example of mid-continental earthquakes, the study was focused on China. It relates to the New Madrid Seimic Zone.

I'm not going to give you the answer. I'm hoping you're on the same trail and can follow. Take the lead. Look at the map and study the city in which it was located.

Central Asia is such a big place.

Did you know Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoyevsky was imprisoned in Omsk?

This sounds interesting,.

Underground quartz deposits worldwide may be behind earthquakes, mountain building and other continental tectonics, a discovery that may aid in predicting tremblers, according to a study released on Wednesday.

Scientists say quartz is key to earthquakes

Hey everyone!

Considering the grand scale of things and this planet we all share, I feel this is relevant here.

30 Whales have become stranded on an island in Tasmania. Remember, a bunch stranded themselves a few days before the New Zealand ChristChurck earthquake as well.

Just now had a decent-sized jolt

Could quartz mineral hold the key to predicting earthquakes and volcanic eruptions? Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk...

Interesting huh?

It's definately bigger than 2.5 mag.
Probably bigger than 3 mag.

I was near a east-facing wall in my house and heard the boom, boom before it actually jolted the house. I'm curious to see how close this one was to me.

Had a small jolt here at about 12:45. I thought someone had run in to something outside. Then the larger one at 1:00. Dogs were whining like crazy.

Where are you located? I didn't feel anything at 12:45. USGS hasn't updated yet....

It didn't jolt us but we had some shaking and the plumb bob is still moving and a little swaying. I wonder how big it was, guess they will post it soon.

I`m in Haskell---- south of Benton. I just looked at my screenshot of GEE X40a that I grabbed of the 1:00 hit, and the smaller one at 12:45 is there.

Now we are on home turf-quartz crystals. I love going to Mt. Ida, Arkansas, the home of crystal digging. It has an interesting (literal) vibration.

Ceramicists use ground quartz to make a slippery clay that slides.

Crystals are piezoelectrically active-they hold a charge.

They vibrate (crystal in watches) rhythmically. Until something upsets it.

don't forget about the Hot Springs area.. loaded with quartz crystals too. Just more proof that we should pray for the best and expect the worse.

It is that effect that causes the electromagnetic phenomena and which can be measured from space before an earthquake. It probably also causes the coloured earthquake clouds and the problems with magnetic fields.

Something happened at 17:45 or so, that would be around 12:45 local time.

Looks like a 2.3/2.5

I don't use GEE much - do you know where the X40a station is located? (still no USGS update on the quake)

It`s in Malvern. That`s why I have it loaded, since I`m closer to Malvern than Greenbrier.
