I had another Earthquake.....

We had another earthquake this morning. I didn't feel it and neither did my mom, but it was way too small to really feel. I like the AP. They made a big mistake.....

Small earthquake shakes Missouri; no reports of damage

Residents are waking up to an earthquake in St. Louis County, Mo.

There are no reports of damage from the early morning temblor. It struck about 6:25 a.m. in Fenton, which is in the central part of the state.

Last month, a magnitude 5.2 earthquake shook much of the Midwest. Its epicenter was near West Salem, Ill., near the Indiana border. More than two dozen aftershocks followed that quake, some registering 4.0 magnitude and higher.

I am interested in CNG vehicles because they are good for the environment and aren't powered by dead Marines. I still have a little hope for the world. Read the musings and enjoy.
