Subject: WFS don't come on automatically?? 

The MC unlocked ~20 min ago, correlated with 2 consecutive earthquakes in Mexico.  The MC came back fine after a few minutes, but the WFS never engaged.  I turned them on by hand.  I think that Yuta mentioned once that he also had to turn the WFS on by hand.  There may be a problem in the unlock/relock catching that needs to be looked at, to make sure the WFS come back on automatically.

Also, someone (Masha and I) should look at the seismic BLRMS.  I have suspected for a few days that they're not telling us everything that we want to know.  Usually, if there's an earthquake close enough / big enough that it pops the MC out of lock, it is clear from the BLRMS that that's what happened, but right now it doesn't look like much of anything....just kind of flat for hours.
