shake, rattle and roll

Well it seems that like last year we were meant to start the new year shaking things up. In the last 2 days in the early morning hours we have had 2 earthquakes – one on the 7th (5.0) and one this morning the 9th (4.5) local time. Now I wouldn’t normally mention them since they are so small – but dang – they woke me up and that irritates me. doesn’t help that I live in the hills on top of the fault line.
