About an hour ago, I felt a very obvious, sharp jolt, then stillness. Going to the USGS website a few minutes later, I learned that it was a Richter 2.5, 2km north of my community. While on the site, I filled out a DYFI form, an interesting process.

I immediately got a response, stating that my location (street address) was at the epicenter! At least I have a reliable experience to compare with the next one.....

Incidentally, no discernible effects at all - nothing fell, nothing broke. Maybe I will have a more exciting report the next time.

09/08/14 11:58 PM Mineral Oil instead of Petroleum Jelly? by ireckon

I tried out mineral oil on cotton as tinder. It works well. I heard somebody say mineral oil burns hotter than petroleum jelly (PJ), but I couldn't find any data to prove that. Mineral oil is cleaner to manage (not a big deal). However, PJ has more alternative uses I think.

For tinder, do you carry mineral oil and cotton, or PJ and cotton?
