The Oklahoma City Area was rattled by a steady and increasingly stronger series of earthquakes overnight...

I didn't know that area lies on a fault line.

There are fault lines everywhere, I even have one that's within a 1,000 feet of my house and 100 feet from where I work it arcs east to south towards lake Huron and west to south across the state.  Pretty much dormant even though we have an occasional rumble sound, shake, and sometimes something will fall off a shelf without explanation. 

Sorry this was suppose to respond to MrFrost, since I don't want to go about retyping it I will let it stand.

Fracking?   

Chemical waste injection wells (Rocky Mountain Arsenal)? 

HAARP?

Gee, maybe it’s one of the 4 faults in Oklahoma most likely the Meers. 
Did fracking cause the scarp that runs down the Meers fault line?

Woke up to -23 degrees here, haven't seen what the temps in OKC were but there is another possibility, frost quakes,  but usually they make more noise than movement.

That’s some serious cold and that’s before.  Stay warm.

That's without factoring in the wind chill, have about a 15 mph breeze going too.

I am getting intimately close to my wood stove, whispering sweet nothings to it interspersed with bombastic profanities aimed at the temps, might have to book a trip to the Mexican gulf coast area, become a snowbird.
