Gee.....thanks! <not>
I am so looking forward to spring....
I'm going to stay warm. I'm staying
in. lol
I am too. We've had almost 16 inches of snow in just about a week now! I'd definitely stay in too, if I didn't feel compelled to walk my border collie mix twice a day!

I Need to be out walking mine but
I've been lazy and just letting them
out to run the yard.

I don't think we're supposed to get
that much accumulation...I could be
wrong. lol

Lucky you:)
I'm glad to hear you and
yours will be safe while the
rest of the state disintegrates.
I meant east of the fault. West would mean I'm swimming. LOL. Sometimes I don't know my right from my left. Fact is, if the big one hits, I'll probably be dry, but everything would be destroyed. One of the hazards of living here.

Earthquakes are one of those things that we
don't have to worry about here....or it Was one
of those things.
Over the last few yrs we've had a few "freak"
quakes. There is a huge debate going on about
"fracking".. Some scientists say that this new
way of extracting gas from deep w/i the earth
is causing quakes. Others say it's not....?...

My personal opinion is, fracking is a bad thing. I can't believe they could alter the structure of the underground and it not have some affect.If they start moving things around down there it would have to have some kind of domino effect. Like I said, just my opinion. I wouldn't feel comfortable living close to where they were doing it.
Yeah, it could happen here, but it isn't being help along by man.
Agreed.

That has been my opinion ever since
ppl who had these fracking wells placed
near their homes started being able to
"light" their water.
No sh1t.
The water burns like any other flammable
substance.
When they took their concerns to the
companies they were told they could not
prove that the fracking wells caused this....duh.
What else could have caused it?

But you are right.
When you shoot thousands of gallons of water
(laced with hundreds of chemicals most cancer
causing) into the earth something bad is
bound to happen.

I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you.

It's just one of many theories that May or
May not happen.
I'm a bit more worried about Yosemite blowing.
Maybe that's b/c it would effect me a bit more
than California falling into the ocean. lol

I'm not really worried about it. I don't even have earthquake insurance. We had a small quake a couple weeks ago. Just a sharp jolt. The windows flexed and my grandfather clock gonged. No big deal. The biggest one I've been threw was the one during the world series between the the A's and the giants. Don't remember the year, but I think 1989. I was sitting in my recliner watching the game. My chair started to move around. I thought it was the dog scratching up against me chair. I reached down to shoo her away but she wasn't there.
I then looked in the kitchen where my GF was preparing dinner. She was trying to cut something but kept missing the food. We looked at each other and yelled "Earthquake!" and started laughing as we have both been through enough of them it wasn't a big deal. The TV station went off the air, and when it came back on and we saw the damage it wasn't so funny anymore. The 880 freeway in Oakland that collapsed on itself was horrific. Having traveled that elevated freeway many times, I could recognize the level of damage and the inevitable loss of life. The more damage that was shown, the more I could see how widespread the damage was all around the bay area. It was brutal.
The strange thing is, I was in my office the following week. I had my radio on and the station suddenly went off the air. I instinctively grabbed my desk to hold on because of when the TV went off the air during the quake. I live 40 miles from the hardest hit area, and I was bouncing around pretty good. I couldn't imagine having been right in the middle of it.
I remember that quake.
Terrible damage. After that one I wondered
WHY ppl would live in an area known for quakes
that big...or even bigger.

I lived in L. A. for 9 years when I was a kid and I remember a number of times being tossed out of bed at night, or nearly so, by quakes. The 01/17/94 Northridge 6.8 magnitude quake you mentioned above was tragic, with pancaked freeways and high fatalities. The big one is coming. Not long ago, scientists discovered that there were 200+ fault lines in downtown L. A. alone.

Hi CB.
Hi there!
You know, I've lived in LA all my life (42yrs) and have felt some pretty wicked earthquakes but they become a part of life here I guess. It's the tornadoes that scare the crap out of me. So glad we don't have them here.

If it isn't quakes, it's hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes, firestorms, etc. Mother nature is everywhere, and she's pizzed.
Oh, she be a b1tch alright;) lol

During the freak heat wave, over the summer,
we had a "duracho" ..what we were later told was
a "land hurricane."
Never heard of one and sure never had anything
like that here b/f. The mountains usually stop
things like tornadoes so we were unprepared.

It knocked out the entire states power gird.
We were w/o power, water, and phone for 9 days
in 105 degree temps.
Most ppl went to shelters but w/our dogs and
horses we couldn't leave.
It was pretty miserable.

I'll take the heat(did i just say that?)over cold fer the following reasons thank you.
1. When it rains you don't have to shovel.
2. There is no need for snowplows cruising the streets knocking over mailboxes.
3. I have a huge saltwater swimming pool a few blocks down the road to cool off in.
4. I don't need to wear my union suit to keep warm.
5. My wife can get busy splitting wood fer next winter...
...I have more...

Good Evenin Trouble, should I continue
