Bolinas Earthquake

1999-08-17 07:00:00+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Yow: That big red square on the USGS map of earthquakes in the bay area denotes a 5.0 on the San Andreas fault out near Bolinas that hit while I was standing in a bookstore in San Anselmo. My friends who've been through big ones say that there's a point before which earthquakes are fun and after which they're terrifying. Thinking back to the books falling off the shelves around me, that may have been that cusp.
