Anyone else here in So Cal? I am far enough away, I don't feel anything but is anyone feeling "different"' today?
I am personally, just wondering, most likely coincidental.

As you mentioned OP, I heard something not long ago that Californians tend to prefer these smaller quakes as it shows that plate stress is dissipating over a period of time rather than in just one huge slip,crunch or tear (can't remember the type of plates over there). I'm no seismologist though, so I'm not sure if this theory is true.

"We're all on edge here," said George Nava, the mayor of Brawley, a town of 25,000. "It's not uncommon for us to have earthquakes out here, but at this frequency and at this magnitude it's fairly unusual."
The last major swarm was in 2005, following a magnitude-5.1 quake, she said.
Sunday's quake cluster occurred in what scientists call a transition zone between the Imperial and San Andreas faults, so they weren't assigning the earthquakes to either fault, Graves said.
