FROM THE USGS WEBSITE:

Q: What is the probability that an earthquake is a foreshock to a larger earthquake?

A: Worldwide the probability that an earthquake will be followed within 3 days by a large earthquake nearby is somewhere just over 6%. In California, that probability is about 6%. This means that there is about a 94% chance that any earthquake will NOT be a foreshock. In California, about half of the biggest earthquakes were preceded by foreshocks; the other half were not. At this time, we cannot tell whether or not an earthquake is a foreshock until something larger happens after it... so only in retrospect.

Thanx, Benny. Always love your explainations and good work you and Craig put into the site. And the other Mods as well.

No, it doesn't work quite like that, in fact winds would really help stir up the air and equalize temperatures; it's when we have such stagnant/still air that things reverse, warm air rises and a pock of cool air sinks just below. It won't necessarily spill over the dam and mostly settles into the lowest parts of the Valley which would be more towards the east end of town, pretty much Division eastward, Baldwin Lake/Shay Meadow/Erwin, etc. Right now it would be a bit warmer around the lake given the current lake temperature @ about 60 degrees. A much more detailed explanation can be found here. [Click Here]

Is it the prevailing west wind that is preventing the air from sinking out of the valley?

I just so thought that cold air would drain down the valley and over the dam. What is the geography that maintains that inversion?

Yeah it's pretty crazy, heres more proof of our wicked inversion, at the top of Bear Mtn at about 8500 the current temperature is 52 degrees. [Click Here] Stuff! but not when we're trying to make snow...

Must be one of Benny's All Hallows Eve inspired mid-slope inversions. With the partial eclipse today and all. I'm just sayin'.

Wow. 37.6 at Shay Meadow and 66.7 here in Crestline.

I felt sorry for them, and they seemed like a decent family unit but it did not seem right. I will keep an eye on the news. DHS is not the smartest place to get out of your car at night. Or even in the daytime in some areas.
I have seen some very strange things going on. Very friendly girls I had a couple who offered to cook me dinner

Probably a wise decision. Those folks can be wise and resourceful. and might be making a living off of situations like yours.
