    No story yet. This just broke and is on the front page of MSNBC. Did any of our northern California residents feel it?

    How creepy. But it sounds like you all are okay. How close is this to you?

    Could this be the beginnings of "The Big One"?

    Hey crunch, surfs up.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Yeah. California is about to slip into the ocean.

    If Cumbre Vieja in the Canary Islands goes, then both seaboards will be decimated...! Sleep well.

    Quickly, call Beau Bridges.

    Actually, that can't happen. Over the course of time, the area west of the San Andreas Fault will move north, with respect to the area east of it. Rather than slip into the Pacific Ocean (a farcical idea), San Francisco and Los Angeles will eventually end up as part of Canada. But relax. That won't happen for millions of years. No need to file new citizenship papers just yet.
