    I grew up in CA. I have ALWAYS said that when the weather is dry and windy whether in the winter months or other months – we GET EARTHQUAKES. None of the experts at Cal Tech have ever commented on this fact. Any thoughts? I predicted earthquakes three days ago when the dry air and wind started up – voila we’ve had 3 earthquakes so far. Are these pre-quakes or aftershocks? Experts please assess and reply.

    It so happened to be a tuesday night 1/14/14 and my friend and I were texting around 10ish and I said “we are going to have an unexpected quake within the next few days” only said this because of hot and cold weather from what my grandfather use to say. And please tell me why 3 1/2 hrs later we get a good size earthquake
