Just about twenty minutes to three, there was a minor earthquake that is now rated at 4.7 near Berkeley. That can change with updates of course. I am wide awake and annoyed. This was not on my itinerary. What is scary is that the Calaveras Fault has been moving lately near San Jose. We got our first good storm yesterday, and some area around here has burned. Bare ground, rain and earthquakes do not go together well. Okay, so this has nothing to do with gardening.

Update: It is now about half a day later and the earthquake was downgraded to a 4.4, and was located on the Hayward Fault, not the Calaveras Fault, in Berkeley near Oakland. It occurred at 2:39 a.m..

      1. I always miss them. I was literally driving from the area when the Loma Prieta Earthquake happened. The epicenter was just a few miles from home. I felt it a hundred and fifty miles away, but had no idea how bad it was. I left Beverly Hills the night before the Northridge Earthquake. Even the recent earthquake in Napa happened the morning after I left the area. I think I should just stay put.
