    English weather in California

    Monday, January 21st, 2008

    It looks like I brought the English weather with me, its been raining on and off since I got back to California. Just checked the weather and its due to continue until at least Monday. At least it should stop any wildfires for a little bit. I’ve not been taking any photos since I got back, haven’t really been out anywhere to do so. I was quite surprised that I haven’t really been jet lagged this way, maybe I didn’t properly adjust to UK time and I think that going to sleep late lessened the effects but I’ve been feeling OK since I got back, getting up in the mornings has been much easier than normal!

    San Andreas Fault

    Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

    I didn’t realise how close the San Andreas fault is to San Bernardino, it passes just through to the north so any major quake would have a massive impact here. According to this article, which itself is over a year old, it’s overdue for an erruption which could be similar to the magnitude 7.6 in Pakistan a year ago. Liquefaction could occur because of the underground aquifers and so the houses would all collapse. I thought I was safer this far from San Francisco!
