I feel the earth move

Okay, I really don’t. Happy now?

Apparently we had an exceedingly minor earthquake last night, magnitude 2.7, although to me it doesn’t look so damn minor.

The epicenter seems to have been just east of Mercy Health Center. The Oklahoma Geological Survey would like reports from people who noticed it.

    2.7 on the Richter scale? To feel that, I think you’d have to be the eponymous princess of “The Princess and the Pea.”

    (Richter scale is a log scale. So every point it goes down (or up) is ten times less (or greater)).

    IIRC, most folks don’t feel anything below 3.5 or so.

    Well, I didn’t notice anything from six miles out. (If I had, that post would have been up last night.)
