we are under a tornado watch all day today. i worry about my kids being in different buildings, too.

glad you're ok.


I was just thinking the other day about how scared I was of earthquakes when I first moved here. Now I hardly think of them at all, but I still get way weirded out when I feel one.


I was freaked out about earthquakes for the first couple years I lived here. And then I got over it. Coming from a place where death could come from above any season of the year (hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes, you name it) and having lived in places where death crawled the earth (spiders, scorpions, snakes), earthquakes just don't freak me out anymore. Much.


Mamadaisy - Hope you are ok! do they still tell you to get in the bathtub under a mattress?

Lizriz - yeah. I've lived here since I was 10 and they are scary, no two ways about it.

Sean -- exactly :) I'm from Texas, so I can include the sun as a potential killer, too. (srsly)


Hello from your prepared [paranoid]friend who always has a pair of shoes at the foot of the bed and it's not because I am part of a cult: Please put a smallish (everything about you is smallish!)pair of tennis shoes, a bottle of water, a power bar and if it will fit, one of those anoraks in a sac in a small backpack and keep it at work.

That is an excellent idea. I'm adding airplane size booze bottles, too. The teeny ones, not actually airplane-sized.
