I am not an end times person, but respect your POV. Here in Southern Cali , we are warned on a daily bases to be ready for "The Big One" Its coming, its not a question of if but when. When we have a little shaker here we talk about it and forget about it. When you have them back to back you can't just forget about them. It is very rare. That is why I am wondering if there is going to be a big one soon or if the plates are just letting off some built up tension. Its hard to tell. On the news they are saying the same thing, could we be in for "The Big One"?

Just as a reminder to my fellow So Cal-ians:
As a precaution, ALWAYS make sure your gas tank is full! If it gets down a bit, keep it filled up when you are able.
Don't forget the blackout of September, how many people were caught without gas as the stations were unable to pump.
That was my son's first day at his charter school. I had noticed my tank down to a quarter and thought I would get gas after picking him up from school. Thankfully a little hunch just told me "No, get it now." Glad I did! Right after leaving his school that afternoon, the blackout came and there were so many stranded people.
This was also during a VERY hot period of time.
Also, keep a good stock of water and food..ESPECIALLY water. In fact, I think I am going to get offline and go get some more water.
