We had an earthquake today here, it didn't do any damage and I really couldn't even feel anything from where I was standing in the middle of the room. Roy was sitting at his desk with his arm resting on it and he felt the desk shake. It sounded like a big truck roaring by the house; but when we looked outside there was nothing there. We are basically on rock here so I guess rather than shake we make noise, I don't know anything about earthquakes coming from the Canadian prairies.
The USGS site says that it was a 4.8 magnitude and was about 86 km. or 54 miles southwest of us at a depth of 3.8 kms. or 1.9 miles in the Gulf of California or the Sea of Cortes, (it is called by both names here).
So, that was our day, how was yours?
