Have you ever been awakened by a loud noise no one else heard? (SNP)   The Healthy You: Health and Fitness Polls

Started 8/17/20 by $1,661.87 in cats (ROCKETMAN_S); 6792 views.

Have pictures, ready to Google specs and then decide which one to click on "Buy it Now".

Ordered a motherboard, and if the other listing page will refresh, ordering a hundred of the tiny little screws that secure stuff in that computer and many others.

Also looking for some small anti-static zip-lock bags to finish organizing a whole bunch of tiny components, fasteners, and such.

You robs lay have those bags hidden somewhere.

I found some that were way, way too big, and still haven't found the smaller non-anti-static ones.

I woke up to a huge roar just in time to have something jiggle my bed and toss me onto the floor. I think it was attracted to the coils in my boxsprings.
After a year of research I just learned my new neighbor's grown son has access to a lot of high tech equipment from his dad's job. I suspect his room is better stocked than many radio stations.

Or it was coming from deep underground, maybe around 3.5 on the Richter scale. Evidently we are now having warms of small quakes here that are too faint for most people to feel. They think these are shallow quakes caused by stresses in the crust caused by oil and gas extraction, and fracking getting into some faults and acting like a lubricant causing them to slip.

But if the vibration is at the right frequency, it will cause resonance and thus apparent amplification at the surface.

After all, the whole west Coast area is part of the Ring of Fire.

I've known about the ring of fire since the 60's. Nothing in my area but mud, water, trees and plants.
I think I have finally figured out my noises. I know a ladycop in the city. I am going to see if my neighbor's name turned up on any noise lists. Used to be musician.
Looks like your neighbors to the east are close to being in trouble right now.

Well, Seattle is entirely built on a geologically recent lahar flow, which all that is needed is a good sized quake to cause soil liquefaction and massive destruction.

Not sure about how seismically active the area around Portland is, but soil liquefaction is a huge problem in that whole region. That is what did so much damage in the 1989 earthquake in San Francisco, and before that, the 1906 earthquake.
