      This is the 3rd earthquake we've felt in the last 2 years. Only one actually had its epicenter near us, but it was teeny (2.1).

      I knew there was a fault running north-south through this region. One hit near my parents house when I was a kid - we thought the furnace had exploded. The second one hit when I was getting ready to go to my very first day of my very first job. It was also the last day, but not due to the earthquake. I'm just not the tele-sales type, and waking hung-over people at 7:30 on a Saturday to try to sell them a crappy newspaper is just not my thing.  

      Seems the fault is waking up a bit.
