Yes that was a Lake Sinclair earthquake you felt Saturday 10/3/15

But it was just a little bitty 2.0 earthquake.  The epicenter was over near Sinclair Drive. Immediately after it occured dozens of people started talking about what it was on social media.  There were lots of suggestions. There were people who suggested it was thunder, jets breaking the sound barrier, trains, fireworks, and even canons. Having lived here all my life I was pretty sure and commented that I was pretty sure it wa an earthquake.

I began to doubt myself when it still wasn't showing on the site this morning. I actually went and reported it. Did you know you could report an event you suspect wa an earthquake? You can report here.  You can check for recent earthquake events on this site. You can see the star on the map where the epicenter was located  My house is about 2 miles or so west of that area. I went back into my blogging archives to see when the last earthquake was and found I'd blogged about events on Valentine's Day of 2014 and April 5, 2009. Somtimes we feel and hear them and sometimes we don't.  Last nights event was about 3 miles deep and it was felt in a wide area around the lake. 

It's nothing to worry about and we've never had damage. They seem to occur when we've had a dry spell followed by a LOT of rain just like we've had in the most recent 10 or so days of weather.
