Sounds like the San Andreas is letting us know it is still there. Thanks for the information.

I used to live in Inverness in the early seventies, I would give my left arm to retire there if I could afford it but I always remember the pictures of the road near inverness after the great quake of 1906. It moved 21 feet laterally I believe.
