Holy Holy Week!! (2010) Look at the Earthquakes!

The Ring of Fire (and the mountains of the Mediterranean) rockin' this Holy Week.  Just felt a slight but prolonged (for an earthquake) sensation, like that of slowly rolling to a stop in a luxury car with 'soft' suspension, from the 6.9 quake centered in Delta, Baja California del Norte.  Pray for them!  6.9 is vastly bigger than our  4.4 Pico Rivera quake (the Burrow is within walking distance of the Pico shaker epicenter).
But look at what Wikipedia has for this year's Passiontide ~ see Matthew 27: 50-54 and 28: 1-8 ~ :

A magnitude 5.0 earthquake struck west of Kohlu on 1 April. [18]



The British Virgin Islands was struck by a number of small earthqaukes from 2.8 to 3.4 magnitude earthquakes and was felt in Road Town,Tortola and Anegada on 1 April. [19]


A magnitude 4.0 earthquake was felt in Chignik just 105 mils west of the epicenter on 1 April.


The french side of the Pyrenees was struck by a magnitude 4.4 earthquake on the Western Pyrenean Fault Zone on 1 April.


A magnitude 4.3 earthquake was felt in the city of corum just north of the epicenter on April 2. [20]


A 5.2 magnitude earthquake struck the Mariana Islands on 2 April. [21]


A magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck south off the islands of Fiji on 2 April. [22]


A magnitude 4.4 earthquake struck the centre of Costa Rica on 2 April. [23]


A magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck the Barat Daya Islands in Indonesia on 2 April. [24]


A magnitude 5.2 earthquake struck the city of Maule in Chile on 2 April. [25]


A magnitude 4.2 earthquake struck Sicily in Italy on 2 April. [26]


A magnitude 4.6 earthquake struck between Glogow and Polkowce in Poland on April 3. [27]


The Ryukyu Islands was struck by a magnitude 5.1 earthquake on April 3. [28]


The Kermadec Islands was struck by a magnitude 5.3 earthquake on April 3. [29]


The Mentawai Islands struck by a magnitude 4.2 earthquake on April 3.


The Cayman Islands was struck by a magnitude 4.2 earthquake on April 4. [30]


The Kuril Islands was struck by a magnitude 4.8 earthquake on April 4.


A magnitude 4.1 earthquake 115 miles offshore of Oaxaca on April 4.


Guam was struck by a magnitude 4.4 earthquake on April 4

A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck the town of Delta in Baja California just hours after a magnitude 4.1 earthquake near Oaxaca on April 4.


A magnitude 4.1 earthquake struck the Cobb Mountain on April 4. 

Cobb Mountain is in Lake County, California, which is named after the geologically particularly ancient Clear Lake.  It's north of Sta. Rosa and east of Ukiah and Point Arena.  I'm guessing these last (Please, God, let them be the last!) two temblors are San Andreas offshoots.

The experts opine that 'big earthquake years' are really only a matter of significant shakers locating where there are lots of people to experience it with danage to their stuff.  Maaaaaaaybe.  But I wonder if there are bigger-than-we-figger forces, like cosmic conjunctions of magnetism and centrifugal force as our solar system voyages on its circuit 'round the Galaxy (or sumpin).
