Keep in mind that if you tried to travel the same distance that Russia spans over the lower 48, you'd hit ocean before finishing the trip. So
geography and having a country that big raises the odds a bit.
Earth probably sees a lot more large-ish meteors than we'd think, but a lot are out over the ocean where there isn't diddly. One big enough to level a
city might hit out in the open Pacific, but few would notice that the waves went up by half a foot for part of the day. And I wouldn't be too
surprised if some of the guys monitoring military sats occasionally get an interesting show every other decade or so when a meteor hits, but they're
probably told to keep quiet about it.
