I missed this one, I was going to order a quake detector and add it to the weather station. Princeton U has a program, so guess if they're getting this close I need to add one. Of course that would probably require electricity to operate and at the moment - 15.5 hours and counting - we don't have any. Turns out the cable guys stringing fiber - yes, we red headed orphans in the very lowest parts of lower Riberas soon will have fiber at our local pole - now, if we could have water, streets and electricity that would be icing on the cake, as it is, it's only icing - no cake. Anyway, they over stressed a pole and it broke taking two more with it, so if it weren't for bad luck, we'd have no luck at all - and, AND, THIS AIN'T EVEN THE RAINY SEASON YET WHEN WE EXPECT POWER TO GO OFF?
But, survival is a matter of being prepared, I recently created my version of a "miners hat" with an old cap and an LED light, works great. http://chapalaweather.net/hat.jpg
