My little earthquake feed picked up the first “big” quake since I wrote it. “Big” quakes are defined as being the top three magnitude categories greater than 3. So 3s, 4s and 5s are big unless there are 5s, 6s, and 7s. The one last night was just a 3.0 and far away. The feed has really amazed me as to how many earthquakes there are every day in California.

It is amazing how many there are — every time I use NNW, it seems 15 new ones are there… Any way to limit it to 2.0 or 2.5 and above? That’d probably require more work than it’d be useful though, huh? Still a cool feed.
