Is that from when the earthquake of 1811 caused the Mississsippi River to run backwards for several miles and then to change course ???

Yes; I think the camera mounting is slightly off, too.

I tilted the veiw 2.1° counterclockwise and the buildings on the horizon leveled out as well.

That probably would be Goat Granny.

I'll bet she took better care of her goats in the morning.


The wife complained of the high threshold on the old door into the goat area, as well as having to go to the far end of the barn to get into the pasture, so I modified stuff last week; putting access much closer to the house.

“I was in California in the late 80s for the one that tipped over the elevated highway, etc. Don’t remember how big it was exactly, but it was a heckuva lot bigger than 5.8.”


I believe that was the 7.0 which occurred opening day of the World Series between the A’s and the Giants in 89. I was a route driver at the time and went to Oakland/Berkeley two days later. Some of the buildings had toppled and a few of my customers were missing.

Once was crossing the Golden Gate bridge when an earthquake hit. It felt like all four tires on my car went flat at the same time. The beams on the bridge were swaying. Scary!

“Was that a Kalamazoo made Gibson in 62 ?

I was wondering when they quit making em there ....”


I have no idea. Will have to check it out. I know they are now made in Nashville, TN and Bozeman, Montana.

Oh my goodness! A while back I looked at that area with GoogleEarth® and saw the bluff that runs thru or near New Madrid. scary!

I'm a couple hundred miles north of you and we have a small fault, Mt. Carmel, in our area, but it doesn't do much.

Skipping stone? Did you say skipping stone?! One of the great simple pleasures of life! Finding and properly throwing a skipping stone across a body of water...!
