Rock & Roll In Earthquake Country
Well, I've been in hurricanes, blizzards, storms, firestorms, and floods, and seen hurricanes and tornados on TV. I'll pick an earthquake any day. It's exciting and scary, and then after 5 seconds to a minute, it's over. Of course, it might take years before things get back to normal... the highway is still being rebuilt years later... but its a lot less stressful than being stuck in a blizzard.

Take proper precautions - secure your bookshelves (we have lots of books) and water heater, bolt your house to the foundation, have emergency supplies of food and water (we have to work on that) and set up an emergency system with your neighbors.
