A 4.0?? That's just a little bit of entertainment - nothing to worry about there.

It takes at least a 5.0 for us to even give it any attention. I sit just a few miles off of the infamous San Andreas fault. When we had our big'un in '89, I went hiking in the mountains right where the epicenter had been (a little dangerous). The ridges were literally split open.

South of here, is a very large park area called "The Pinnacles." In the Pinnacles there is 1/2 of a many million year old volcano which was smack in the middle of the San Andreas fault. The other 1/2 of the volcano is down around Los Angeles, 300 miles South of the Pinnacles. That is how much that fault has shifted in that period of time.

All we have to do is sprinkle the seeds, and shazzaam, there are the flowers. Well, it isn't quite that easy, as we do have to water them. The wildflowers here are absolutely beautiful.
