    Earthquake in Afghanistan

    Right around 12:30 am, got the opportunity to do some "bed-surfing", when a 6.2 earthquake hit Northeast of Kabul. No damage that I can tell in my little neighborhood.

    It was the first time I was in one that I can remember. Pretty interesting experience, and we haven't experienced any after shocks that I'm aware of.

    6.2 is pretty solid. Was it a roller or a jolter?

    A roller. Started out gentle, and built up to a crescendo.

    Bed surfing is a trip. Luckily, I woke up at 12:15 for another reason, and was awake for the whole deal.

    In a building, or a tent? I can't imagine that the local buildings do well in those.

    It's a Russian building; welded steel square tube construction. Just like a Piper Cub.

    Sucker will take anything short of an Atom bomb.

    Re: Earthquake in Afghanistan

    The real question is, if an earthquake hits Afghanistan, does anyone notice afterwards?
