We get smaller ones all the time. Most are from north central Oklahoma where all the fracking is going on. Last year or so a couple 80 miles N.E. of me at 4.2 to 5.2 in the salt mine areas. Most the Okies have been around 3 to 4.

Before my phone crashed I had a weather app out of Wichita that alerted/showed recent quakes, location and intensity reported within a few mins.  If I felt some thing I could look real quick. Living a short block from the Union Pacific and U.S. Highway 54... it's hard to know the difference sometimes ;D

I wish all you guys the best dealing with those quakes. We don't get them too often on the east coast, even when we do they are of little consequence....so far.
The corona virus is another story. All the schools are closed, everything is being done online. My wife and son are working from home and my family has been self quarantined for about 6 days now, just trying to do our part to distance ourselves and keep everyone healthy. I, however, because of my job am going to work every day. They have set a curfew of 8PM in Philly.
Stay safe and healthy guys!!

James Whitcolm Riley (1849-1916) was known as the the Hoosier poet wrote a great poem inspired from a series of earth quakes in that part of the country in the 1800s. "When the World Bu'st Through" was one of many children's poems that seem to be aimed at scaring the crap out of kids to get them to behave and do as told. Really not a bad goal. My grandmother could recite Riley poems by the hour. She gave her book of his poems to my brother and me the day we moved back to Texas from California March 21st, 1949 the first day of spring according to the inscription. It was given to her when she was a little girl. I can see it from where I am sitting.
Here is a link to the poem: https://books.google.com/books?id=MSFsROT0TP0C&pg=PA125&lpg=PA125&dq=james+whitcomb+riley+When+the+World+Bu%27sts+Through&source=bl&ots=l5xceoEepe&sig=ACfU3U1502pwW9ZGsuWHaD0LRu5eQZL8dA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjXm4ak7LPoAhX6CjQIHT4aDQwQ6AEwDnoECBAQAQ#v=onepage&q=james%20whitcomb%20riley%20When%20the%20World%20Bu'sts%20Through&f=false

My wife and I shopped during the senior hour at the grocery store yesterday. Quite an experience. A lot os scared old people. I felt so sorry for many of them. They just wanted to get in before all the toilet paper and prune juice was gone. There was plenty of everything. No empty shelves, no pushing and grabbing items. No one grumpier than old people usually are. As the younger people were showing up for their turn obviously some had been home schooling since the schools closed. In the parking lot I saw a young mother scraping a "MY CHILD IS A GOOD STUDENT" bumper sticker off of her car.  ::)  ;D There is some evidence that Californians and citified Nevadans ar making runs to rural towns in both states and buying up all they can. Probably to resell at home. Why else would you buy 20 gallons of milk?

If this lasts long enough we will see the difference between the Military and the Militia.

Sixball, never seen that poem before.

That happened to our little grocery store last week. Boss lady was out, two out of town couples came in and bought all hamburger, milk, patatoes, toilet paper and paper towels 😡

 Owner was pissed when she got back, she said it wasn't nesessary to limit because towns people weren't hoarding. Had to limit purchases signs, truck order was a day late and only recieved 1/3 her order due to Amarillo warehouse shortage. Now we haven't caught up yet.
