Given the location (CA) I'd say God was involved. Anyone else make comments about wishing CA would fall into the ocean? ;)

3.7... you have to be close to the epicenter to feel that. No big deal.

Downgraded to 3.6 now. Didn't even feel it in Burbank. No biggie. We get them this size quite often.

A year or so ago there was a swarm of quakes in Simi Valley, so I wouldn't be surprised if there were more 3's. If they start going up in magnitude, I am going to start praying, though!

This wouldn't even get press coverage if there weren't already fires there. 3.7 is an everyday occurance.

...We now see 2 SkyCranes scooping up water out of Lake Arrowhead.

...Fires now started up on the Mountain ridge north of Lake Arrowhead throwing lots of smoke back onto the High Desert where many evacuees are holed up.

There is some truth to that. There appears to be a higher incidence of earthquakes in CA during weather patterns similiar to the one present over the past few days. The cause may be related to a change in the stress exerted by the wind on the earth's surface when the wind blows from the east as it has been doing the past few days.

You take care of your and yours.

...Did you evacuate to the High Desert or south of the fires..?

...I have a relative who left Big Bear Lake for the second time in as many days yesterday and is now sitting on the High Desert where the new Arrowhead smoke is coming to, I'm sure.

...Another is cornered by 3 fires at the north end of the San Fernando Valley trying to decide which one to run from.

...KNBC Channel 4 just showed us Reporter CHUCK HENRY's Tape of firemen on the ground fighting a fire raging in a cabin east of Arrowhead Lake.

...DAVIS is now being informed by KNBC Channel 4 that 150 homes have been destroyed at the southeast side of Lake Arrowhead. DAVIS had no idea.

...DAVIS now calls on the Feds to give us more resources to help.

Thank GOD we helped ourselves on October 7, 2003.

There was just now a 3.0 just north of Anchorage. It's nothing, but if a 3.7 is important, a 3.0 is only slightly less important.
