This is for those people who think that Los Angeles and San Francisco are just right down the street from each other.

Heck, even southern California is spread out.

Heck, even the Inland Empire is spread out.

On Friday afternoon, I was reading about an 4.1 earthquake near Yucaipa, California, which is probably less than 40 miles from my home in Ontario.

The earthquake apparently happened on Thursday morning. This was the first I had heard about it.

Part of the yawn factor was the fact that the earthquake's epicenter was in the mountains, six miles northeast of Yucaipa. By way of contrast, the Chino Hills earthquake was in a populated area, surrounded by a lot of heavily populated areas, and was much more powerful.
