This has been exciting in Illinois. The IRIS program got a lot of
publicity on Friday. The local news station looked at the seismogram
I have posted on the internet on our district website. They sent a TV
crew and interview students. Another sent a crew and it the newspaper
also did a story.
I have installed the new dampering system that John Lahr sent. It
does not appear to be as sensitive at the oil I used. Has anyone
started to use it? Should I move the metal block back a little ways
to decrease the amount of dampening.
My students have been thrilled. We are actually on our earthquake unit.
