Another one

And now we've had another earthquake, this one 2.6 so much smaller (remember, it's a logarithmic scale), in exactly the same place - 33.96N 118.42W 12 km down.  Again pretty much vertical slip. (there's also one listed in the LA area on the 22nd at 1am, but it's 115 kilometers east of this one, and  at 2.1 small wonder I didn't notice it.) Long as it keeps making bitty little adjustments instead of one big one, I'm happy.

I'm reminded of the old local legend of the earth being built of mud on the backs of multiple turtles, which occasionally move around.

Even across the dimensions, it all comes down to turtles in the end.

Yup - turtles all the way down. :)
