Me too!
But last week it was very active up here in Southern CA. - Los Angeles area.
4.7 and several aftershocks - We were feeling them...
Crazy -
Like there isn't enough to be concerned about -
Oh my. Life.

Oh well as you are there please take care, I assume you do have a plan in place in case the "big one" comes? If not now might be a good time to start thinking about it,

Interesting about plans -
We have them - and lots of emergency food - water - etc -
If in fact we end staying here - we are prepared.

We have places to go that will be safe -
IF we have to leave and IF we can get out -
I think getting out may be a problem.

But the truth is-
We don't know where we will be if it does hit...
no one does - and that's the most unsettling part of it all -

We won't know if there will be tsunami issues - or if the house will hold up -
or if we will be in a tall office building or in an underground parking structure -

During the Northridge quake I watched the trees move
and creak back and forth - and transformers blow near a neighbors home -

It was surreal - and amazing in the most uncomfortable way.
It was as though someone was rocking the earth - very slowly.
Really strange -
And we did have quite a lot of damage in town -

So - we do have plans -
the question is -
will it matter.

The earth quakes are in the owens valley, nothing out 0f the ordinary.
The places shakes all of the time.
Now if mammoth mtn or the dome in long valley start to move around then there is something to worry about.

The long valley caldera is the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions on the planet.

Having lived in So Calif for 56 years I've experianced several quakes,I've always had a feeling they will discover a fault that will span from the Orange county area all the way to the san Diego area,the fault will be close to the shoreline,as the result of liquification,just my theory,needless to say this has irritated my friends who live in those areas,they say I'm saying it because I recently moved to Arizona,I hope I'm wrong but my premontions seem to be right
