Earthquakes of varying magnitudes are a daily occurrence in our great state. Anything under 3.0 are generally not felt.

 

Sit through a 6.0 + and you will contact your saviour.

The 94 Northridge quake has completely ruined Marji. Quake of any size sends her screaming for the door.

If you're looking for a really exciting ride, try being mid-span in stop and go commuter traffic on any of the S.F. Bay Area bridges when an earthquake strikes. I was on the Benicia bridge on 10/17/89 at 5:04 pm listening to the start of the Bay Bridge (A's v. Giants) World Series at Candlestick when the 7.1 Loma Prieta quake broke loose. I wanted to kiss the ground when I got to the other side.

During that quake, I could have surfed the break in my pool. We lost half the pool water when it was done. At the time, we lived 6 miles from the San Andeas and the pool was parallel with the fault.

The bright side is you have summer all year long.....the downside is the whole thing may slide into the ocean someday.
