There were two earthquakes yesterday in New Mexico. They were both in the northern part of the state, a very minor one near Albuquerque, and another, a 3.4 farther north. Tremors and shocks are actually fairly common in the State. There is a fault line that more or less follows the Rio Grande River and several smaller faults that run under and around the areas where the volcanoes once were. Hearing about these reminded me of being awakened in the middle of the night by one back in 1970 or 1971. That one was greater, I think 4.7. It is strange being awakened like that, because you're never sure whether it was real or a dream.
I was thinking this morning that my daughter was born in March, 1970, an for the next few months there were several tremors or shocks in Albuquerque. That surely says a lot about her impact on the world, doesn't it?
