Spiderquakes,,,    great name!!
A few months ago I recorded about a dozen in a 24 hour period.  When I couldn't correlate them with any quakes on the lists I
figured that I had another critter,,,,    it had happened before.  When I first looked I couldn't find any web or spider,,,   s
I got a strong flash light and looked again.  This time I found the spider but still couldn't see the web.  The spider was the
smallest daddy long leg type that I have ever seen.  His legs were only about .25 inches long and were just barely visible to m
eye.   I could have put 5 to 10 bodies of its' size on a pin head,,  about 2 or 3 on a "period" (.) in this email.
