The place shook for about a minute and the sound was like a deep deep thundering. We didn't sustain any damages and to be honest I was actually glad we are in an RV. Mars still hasn't got around to putting us up on blocks yet with so many other things that have more importance at the moment, so the tires kind of cushioned us. No worries about falling plaster or cracks in walls anyway! I've been through a couple of quakes in the past, so once I got over the initial shock I was like "WOW" That was a pretty good size one.
It is being reported in some places that these quakes are happening because of fracking in the area. If you don't already know about fracking, you might just want to look into it. Basically, you can say that these were "man-made" quakes. I'm not going to turn this post into one about it but stay tuned cause there is probably one coming!
You know when since we have been here we have experienced quite a few "First time in Recorded History" events. Last winter we broke old records with the most snowfall in a day, the latest snowfall recorded and a couple of others as well. And then this summer was one of the hottest on record, the most days above 100, least rainfall,etc. And now the largest recorded earthquake in recorded history. I'm beginning to wonder what the heck is next!!
