We just had another earthquake, and I can't stop shivering and panting. I'm so scared.

Well, I guess I’m Vero-ing now, too. I’ve yet to seek folks out in there but the server problems seem improved since this morning. Clearly there’s some intended synergy between the app and certain downloadable music platforms but I must admit that I like being able to create “listening now” posts based on what I’m zoning on my phone. No ads. No merlinmoon. Yet.

Remember when everything was neon on a white t shirt? Let's not and say we did.
It is a prominent geological feature that is almost impossible to see unless you know where to look. Hundreds of thousands of people drive across it every day. The San Andreas Fault is everywhere, and primed for a colossal quake. For decades, scientists have warned that such a sudden shifting of the Earth’s crust is inevitable. In fact, it is a geologic necessity.
The San Andreas fault runs almost the entire length of California, from the redwood forest to the east edge of the Salton Sea. Along the way, it passes through two of the largest urban areas of the country—San Francisco and Los Angeles. Dozens of major highways and interstates cross it. Scores of housing developments have been planted over it. The words “San Andreas” are so familiar today that they have become synonymous with earthquake.
Yet, few people understand the San Andreas or the network of subsidiary faults it has spawned. Some run through Hollywood, others through Beverly Hills and Santa Monica. The Hayward fault slices the football stadium at the University of California in half. Even among scientists, few appreciate that the San Andreas fault is a transient, evolving system that, as seen today, is younger than the Grand Canyon and key to our understanding of earthquakes worldwide. #geology#seismology#earthquake#sanandreasfault#haywardfault#sanandrea#californiaearthquake

Hubo un terremoto anoche mientras dormíamos. De una magnitud de 3.2 a 11 km de mi casa.
No pasó nada, estamos bien. Ni lo sentimos. Estábamos durmiendo.
Yes, there was a 3.2 magnitude earthquake last night. About 7 miles from us. We are fine. We slept through it all.
