Hempburn, I saw a big hawk in a nearby tree and as I watched, it cocked it's head and looked in our overgrown field, dove into the weeds and came up with a big snake in it's talons. It was way cool to see. I almost applauded.

Earthquake swarm puts California town on edge

BRAWLEY, Calif. A series of small to moderate earthquakes that shattered windows and knocked trailer homes off their foundations is putting this small farming town east of San Diego on edge as they continue to feel jolts that scientists said could last for days.The largest quake, registered at a magnitude 5.5, struck at 1:57 p.m. Sunday and was centered about three miles northwest of Brawley, said Robert Graves, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey. Another quake about an hour and a half earlier registered at magnitude 5.3.No injuries were reported.More than 30 additional earthquakes with magnitudes of at least 3.5 shook the same area near the southern end of the Salton Sea, Graves said."The type of activity that we're seeing could possibly continue for several hours or even days," Graves said.The quakes pushed 20 mobile homes at a trailer park off their foundations and rendered them inhabitable, said Maria Peinado, a spokeswoman for the Imperial County Emergency Operations Center. A red-tiled roof apparently collapsed and landed on a wooden fence.Sporadic power outages, at one point affecting 2,500 Imperial Irrigation District customers, also prompted authorities to evacuate 49 patients from one of the county's two hospitals, Peinado said. Police also received numerous calls about gas leaks and water line breaks.By late Sunday, a magnitude-5.1 quake followed by several more with magnitudes of at least 4.0 shook the area."It's not uncommon for us to have earthquakes out here, but at this frequency and at this magnitude it's fairly unusual," said George Nava, the mayor of Brawley, a town of 25,000."And the fact that the aftershocks keep coming are a little alarming," he said.At the El Sol Market, food packages fell from shelves and littered the aisles."It felt like there was quake every 15 minutes. One after another. My kids are small and they're scared and don't want to come back inside," said Mike Patel, who manages Townhouse Inn & Suites.A TV came crashing down and a few light fixtures broke inside the motel, Patel said.The first quake, with a magnitude of 3.9, occurred at 10:02 a.m. The USGS said more than 300 aftershocks struck the same approximate epicenter.Some shaking was felt along the San Diego County coast in Del Mar, some 120 miles from the epicenter, as well as in southwestern Arizona and parts of northern Mexico.USGS seismologist Lucy Jones said earthquake swarms are characteristic of the region, known as the Brawley Seismic Zone."The area sees lots of events at once, with many close to the largest magnitude, rather than one main shock with several much smaller aftershocks," Jones said.The last major swarm was in 2005, following a magnitude-5.1 quake, she said.Sunday's quake cluster occurred in what scientists call a transition zone between the Imperial and San Andreas faults, so they weren't assigning the earthquakes to either fault, Graves said.
Hopefully the link will take you to the correct page. If you're interested scroll down to the video of the family. In four minutes they get shook up four times. The poor dog just wants out of the house

Hey Cinnamon Girl. I have read a bunch on hawks and there is a lot of misinformation out there on them on the net,..Warner nature center claims a hawk can see a mouse 1oo from 100 ft. Well we know thats wrong, awrefuge claims they can see on from 1/2 mile, birdhouses101 says from a mile, and I find several such as rockfishsantuary claiming it see a mouse from 2 miles. I guess the only thing we can agree on, is they can see one pretty far. Thanks CG,, have a good one.

I thought I would post that. I just checked out the guys' video predicting a major earthquake per planet alignment.

And sure enough on the day he predicted, usgs logged a 7.7...Eight months after he made the prediction.

Morning. Humpaburn here. I watched a red tailed hawk snatch a small field(glad someone corrected my spelling)mouse,,,,,yesterday, bad for the mouse but good for the hawk. It soared from a branch some hundred yards and landed on top the poor bugger, then flew off with his meal. I eat buggers sometimes,,,wonder if a field mouse tastes good? Oh well. Hawks are one of my favorite birds. I don't know if this was the same red tailed hawk that swooped down and snatched my pink bunny house slippers off my feet or not. I don't like that one.
I guess I like Buzzards next best. I lay out in a field for three days playing dead trying to buck a Fuzzard one time,,,,,all I got was,,,,fleas,,ticks, chiggers, a field mouse up my pant leg and attacked by fire ants. Dang it.
While getting my morning exercise in the woods,,,,,I've been seeing this gray kind of egg shaped thing hanging on a tree limb. There are a few bugs buzzing around it,,,,they must think it's some kind of light or something. Next time I go there,,,,I'm going to throw rocks at it to see if it breaks.
All you good folks have a nice day,,,,,,,,,that red tailed hawk that stole my pink bunny house slippers,,,,not so much. Humpaburn out.
I cant breath, I cant see. My sides hurt. I think you delivered a lethal dose of humor with that Great One!
