...This was the largest and Longest Duration earthquake I have experienced [b]ever!...
I'll have to agree...largest and longest (I've lived in San Diego County since 1965). I'm east of the City limits by maybe 10 miles. I'm not used to feeling all these aftershocks...and since my B.S. was in geology, I keep wondering if the big one for this cycle has yet to come. It'll be a memorable Easter for my now 9-yr-old daughter.
A curious thing: Our cat was behaving oddly yesterday. If you could catch up with him, he'd purr; but he was acting funny: staring at people and then running away. I got on the floor and pet him and asked if there was an earthquake coming. I wish I'd have thought to write down those times when his behavior was off so I could compare it with the usgs.gov records.
Also, we're packing to take our maiden voyage with an egg. Our plans were to go East to the desert just where some of these aftershocks are centered...some of which are registering a depth of 0.0 km. In the early 1970's DH took a ride with a friend to go see if they could find a break in the earth out in this same desert (he was a geology major too). He found one when he drove his Rambler into it. He had to walk for miles to find a tow truck to pull it out. Since our tug is my sedan for this trip, by next Wednesday when we leave, we won't likely be on roads others haven't traveled. I'll have to admit, though, it would be fun to see a fresh crack in the earth.
