Quake sensors.

Having grown up in earthquake territory I have never lived in fear of them. I think one of the reasons is I always felt them growing up but they never felt bigger than a if a big truck was driving past. Of course in the fist big one we had I was nearly killed by a giant 30 pound candle in the shape of a Christmas tree. I used to be a feel every quake. I would perk up and freeze, like a deer assessing danger. But I seem to have lost my ability to feel even the big ones that have been happening lately. I haven’t felt any of the one that have happened in the last year or so. Tom thinks I blacked out or something not to feel the jolt that happened back in September.

I didn’t feel the quake last night or the one that happened earlier this week. I was kneeling in front of a printer breathing in the toner fumes from an evil exploding toner cartridge when my coworker Holly asked, “Is that an earthquake?” two people responded in unison that it was an earthquake. Satisfied with their assessment she stated, “I don’t have time for an earthquake!” Of course I never felt it even as I was informed it was going on. I guess the earthquake heard her and stopped.

I like the little earthquakes, they are fun. It’s like watching a huge lightning storm. It interesting to hear the rumble and feel movement. I like most Californians will take earthquake territory over hurricane/ tornado territory any day. Especially since the global warming that isn’t really happening hasn’t seemed to increase the occurrence or Category 5 or larger earthquakes. But then again, I’ve never been in a hurricane... And that hurricane party they had on the Facts of Life looked like a lot of fun too!

I was in the 89 one and the 94 one in Northridge down here. Crazy.

I was in LA for a few days this week and I am glad that I either missed them or did not notice them. I think it would have freaked me out. Glad they were small. :) Jill

I spent 9 years in Miami during which period we were threatened with only one hurricane. We were all excited because it meant that we would be having a hurricane party in the dorm for the duration but, alas, we only got the outer fringes of the storm which probably hit further north leaving us with just a lot of rain.
