What to train on next and monitoring Oklahoma Earthquakes

We don't get many Oklahoma Earthquakes, so when the USGS center told us we had one on Monday, I was curious about what was going on. I hadn't felt anything, but all things considered it is another temperature we need to keep an eye on. We had been discussing solar flares and how the forecast of very strong flares over the next few years would effect satellites, radio, TV, CB and ham equipment.

Our group met at a library in Tulsa last week to begin our plans for 2010's training schedule.
We had a show and tell of sharing items from our Winter Emergency Car Kits.

I shared the importance of emergency magnetic red flashing tail lights. Shared my story of earlier this year, loosing all electrical very late at night. Stalled on an steep grade hill with no shoulder, in a black truck.

Mother Nature or our guardian angels seem to give us training exercises of their own. After surviving that one, I purchased these lights the next day for my kit. There is an emergency car kit area in Wal-Mart and many other store chains. Red Cross is a brand with lots of good things in that area. Check it out next time you go to wally-world.

If it was our state or country that experienced a similar blackout of electricity, how prepared are you? No gas can be bought if there is no electricity to pump it out of the tanks. Keeping our gas tanks FULL is very important. Keeping at least one extra gas tank of gas stored on your property can become enormously important in preparing for such situations.

But back to yesterdays earthquake:
