What about us opinionated, non-earth science geeks?

No, weather involves the atmosphere in some way.

I think not. Weather is atmospheric, earthquakes are seismic and I'm fairly certain one doesn't affect the other (unless there's a butterfly effect going on with oceanic earthquakes).

I experienced a little one at 5:15 this AM. I was trying to psych myself to get out of bed when I heard everything in the house shift, and it felt like someone kicked the bed. Then both kids woke up, but were unable to articulate why.

You're in OK? The 1:56 quake was even bigger...both of those woke me up. I slept through the other 3 last night.

Yeah, I saw there were others, but I only felt the 5:15 one.

One question: If you were a news editor, publisher, producer..... someone in charge of an entire news operation.... what department would you make responsible for run-of-the-mill earthquake reports?

Sports? Fashion? OpEd? Features? Local? National?

Most news organizations don't have a Geology department. Weather seems like a good place to include all acts of God.

I like it!

Earthquakes are weather.

Denny's Grand Slam breakfasts are also weather.

An earthquake isn't anymore weather than a rock slide.

No, it's not. However, you can have earthquake weather. Like today.

Well . . . okay.


Replace the word "day" with "weather". The sentence will fit the topic a whole lot better.

P.S. Oops.

Yeah, I agree, although it has its moments. I think he over-seasoned the soup a bit.

With that cover I am surprised you even picked it up! I see five or six other covers available for that book, and they are all better than that one shake

Speaking of earthquakes. Just had my first one last night in Sendai that was big enough to set off the cell phone warning system.
