    Gee…thanks for reminding me.

    Conjures up the song “Living On The Edge” (my version)

    There's somethin' wrong with the world today
    I do know what it is
    But something's wrong with our eyes

    We're seeing things in a different way
    And God could giv-a-shit
    It sure ain't no surprise

    We're livin' on the edge
    We're livin' on the edge
    We're livin' on the edge
    We're livin' on the edge

    There's somethin' wrong with the world today
    The light bulb's gettin' dim
    There's meltdown in Fukushima

    I wonder if this is the corium as I recall a while back the residents claiming the earthquakes felt different, more like explosions underground. Just thinking thoughts.

      We live up here in Northern California by the geothermal plants at Cobb Mountain. There is a difference from an earthquake and an underground explosion. The coriums are on the loose!
      Up here we get a bunch of 2-3.5 caused by the geothermal plants and it is causeing some locals
      to have damage to their homes. Big company that runs the plants have meetings all the time with residents, which does absolutely no good. Geothermal makes scense but not for it's neighbors.

    Three 6 plus quakes 28 minutes ago off Guatemala as we pass through this month's 9 day EQ 'window':

    It's that time of the month for quakes: new moon 11/13, lunar perigee 11/14, and the highest west coast tides of 2012 at 7'5" on the 13th and 7'6" on the 14th. A generic EQ 'window' would be 3-4 days before and after perigee, i.e., today 11/9 through 11/18:

    Four 6.4 quakes 2 hours ago in Gulf of Alaska is an unusual repeat sequence, and might suggest the 'new moon-perigee' window we are in 'til the 18th or so will be an active one:
