Duck & cover!

Well I’ve just been checking on the Mammoth Mountain forum to see what the locals have to say about the in-coming storm and the weekend ahead….anyway I stumbled across this thread, it appears that just before 10am this morning we should have gone into “Duck & Cover” mode because there was an earthquake 26 miles from here measuring 4.3! I didn’t feel anything but it’s the closest I’ve ever been to a quake….pretty cool huh!

Actually looking at this map it seems there have been a few near here recently, I knew we were fairly near a fault line but hadn’t really considered that there’d actually be any quakes while I was here.

Any parents reading this blog please note this is apparently normal out here so there’s no need to worry about any of us unduly!

Spread the love

    It’s wierd to hear about them near the Mountains. nothing like that ever happens in europe. i suppose the american’s are use to it happening.

    Be funny going down, and the kickers start moving 🙂
