earthquake weather?

Earthquake weather. Ever heard of it? I've been hearing about so called earthquake weather for as long as I can remember. I live in Southern California and I've felt many earthquakes but no recent earthquakes come to mind. Although California is known for having earthquakes we just haven't had a sizable earthquake in quite some time. Most of the earthquakes I remember happened when I was a kid. I did feel a small one about three years ago and that was my wife's first time ever feeling one. It kind of rattled her. I can imagine that she is going  freak out when she feels a bigger one.

I don't really recall the weather on or before the any of the earthquakes I have felt. Maybe I don't remember because there was nothing out of the ordinary. Or maybe I don't remember because the bigger earthquakes of note happened when I was much younger and I just don't remember.

I've also heard that dogs can sense earthquakes. The last earthquake I felt was about three years ago. I was at home sleeping when it happened. My dog did not warn me. As a matter of fact I think I woke up before she did.

In any case, fortune telling weather or not, one thing is for sure...a big earthquake is bound to happen sooner or later. Scientists and history says so. To be honest, I'm not sure if there are in fact some sort of change in weather patterns before an earthquake or not, so I don't want to go out on a limb and call BS. It rained and was a little chili here yesterday and today its flippin' hot.

I hope the weather is not trying to tell us something.

Click here to see the U.S. Geological Survey maps that show earthquake activity around the world. See how stable your neck of the woods is.

  2. I completely agree that something is bound to happen eventually. I live in Southern California myself and can only recall the earthquakes when I was a child.

  3. Never heard about earthquake weather before, and i dont think there is an actual earthquake weather.
    Regarding dogs, they can sense a lot of things way before than us. The dog from the gif certainly did hahahah

  4. I have never felt an earthquake. I sort of doubt that any huge, devastating one is going to happen where I live.

  10. Love the pics. Most animals can sense it from what I understand. And we haven't had a big earthquake in quite some time. Bound for one sometime soon.

  13. Earthquakes everywhere it seems, In New Zealand the news was talking about predicting a super 9.0 quake around my area in the not to distant future. People on edge here after have several massive ones in one of our southern cities Christchurch, been hit with 3 building destroying ones in the last year.

  16. not many earthquakes over here in england. My favourite weather related myth is that cows lie down when its going to rain. Of course, its rubbish :P

  17. Cats and dogs hear the sounds people can't, that's why they get a bit crazy before an earthquake.
    There's was a big one here in my city (in Baja California Norte) almost one year ago.

  19. This is my first time hearing about earthquake weather. Yes animals not just dogs can sense earthquakes, or pretty much any calamities. It's probably their animal instinct. thanks for this post.

  27. I very cynical when it comes to things such as earthquake weather. I don't believe it is true, although I have never really experienced an extreme earthquake either. I guess things can change if i ever do experience one.
