I actually didn't feel it here which is surprising. I have friends in Vegas that felt it but it was pretty far from here. Good size shaker that's for sure.

Was sitting at the laptop and felt the house moving and a teeny amount of glass rattling.

Glad both were centered where they were also.

 While i diddn't, 7.1  quake was felt in parts of Scottsdale, the west side of town, and in some neighborhoods on either side of South Mountain also. Did revive talk about Arizona's earthquake history though. While much less common, if we were to see something that big, it would be centered either out by Yuma, up by Flagstaff, or down in the southeast corner of the state / same area of N. Mexico along the Sonora/ Chihuahua state lines. 

As long as it's been, still remember Loma Prieta like it happened yesterday. Considering how close I lived to the epicenter at that time, I'm still surprised there was practically no damage in my neighborhood / area of San Jose. Never forget watching the ground move like ripples on a pond  during one of the bigger aftershocks while checking on neighbors gathering outside right after it happened, let alone the near and distant sounds of countless car / home alarms. Crazy stuff.

Fine for me although closer to the epicenter, damage was done.

Ditto to what Jim said.  But for sure that 2nd one at 7.1 was noticeably stronger than the 6.4.

      Guys...has anyone seen the palms around the parking lot at the Ventura College West Entrance? Although they look a bit neglected and underwatered now, they're clearly very old and some are really weird species I've never seen in person before. I'm definitely gonna need help with ID below genus level (and sometimes genus too).
      1) Hyophorbe verschafeltii? Maybe Dypsis decipiens? 

      2) Pritchardia (no idea what species)

      3) Roystonea (regia?)

      4) Some sort of Ceroxylon (?!!!!)

      5) Pair of Parajubaea cocoides (right?)

      6&7) No freakin clue...something very tall and thin the likes of which I've only seen in Hawaii. Some kind of Dypsis right? I'm out of my depth 
      6) 
      8) Howea forsteriana and Rhopalostylis (species?) 

      9) Beautifully trunking clump of Acoelorrhaphe wrightii
      9)

      While perusing a few threads referencing the 1835 freeze, 1894-1895 freeze and the 1899 freeze, there were a few mentions of this book.  There are used copies available on Amazon for less than $20 so I decided to order it.  After reading it, I’d certainly recommend it.  While the content is presented primarily from the point of view of someone interested in commercial citrus growing, the information about each of the events is certainly relevant to palm horticulture.
      The book was a welcome relief from staring at a screen all day after working a job that typically centers around doing the same.  There are a lot of references and to the small cities throughout the state since they are typically where citrus is grown, and the weather data is obviously of interest to anyone growing palms since the same freezes are typically what impacts what is long-term or bulletproof in an area.
      The book contained weather records and quotes from the various growers as well as descriptions of the weather before and after the freeze.  Some of the quotes are humorous in spite of the fact that these folks likely lost a lot of money due to these events.  Almost all areas are at least represented in the weather records, including Key West in some cases.
      There are actually two freezes from California noted in the book (1937 and 1990).  In my case, the book does provide some weather readings from Lakeland City Hall rather than the airport, and has some weather readings from Bok Tower to compare to the Mammoth Grove area in Lake Wales to illustrate the difference elevation makes during a radiational event vs. an advective event.  There is also information on a few of our early and late season frosts that have the potential to impact tropical plants and citrus alike.  There book also covers an inverted freeze, where north and central Florida were not impacted as harshly as south Florida. 
      The cover photo actually came from our local newspaper, The Ledger.
      As the book was released in 1997, the 1996 freeze is the last one fully covered.  If you want a screen break and you like the data on the weather forums - give this one a read.

      A biig thanks for @Matty B for showing us in California what is possible.  Maybe he will chime in and reveal his sorcery…. I mean growing experiences.

      Not wanting to hijack Bubba’s Satekentia in California post. I hope other growers in other non-tropical localities share their experiences and pictures.    

      My experience so far…

      In January Winter of 2016 / 2017 I bought 2 small, yellowish one gallon Satekentia from KW Palms & Cycads in Lake Elsinore.  The two palms were small and cheap so why not

      Then in July of 2018 I was reading a post in PT.  Matty B stated that his Satakentia seemed like it could take more sun than he had thought at first.  I then decided to move one of my plants out from under shade cloth into full direct Vista sun. I checked on it carefully throughout that day. Then after four days I pulled the other one out into full sun.  They thrived in full exposure!     

      In September, I decided to just plant them out.  

      1. I have no greenhouse

      2. I am ADD

      3. They’re still alive!

      This picture is of them starting their first winter in ground December 2018
