Not too far from Tehachapi, where I used to live...

Never felt a quake the entire time we lived there, though there were some...

Thur. morning I setting in our leased suv waiting on my wife in Westminster. (Little Saigon). At about 10am the suv started to shake I thought what the heck is going on.

Dude, Iím yanking your chain. I didnít realize you were so sensitive.


I appreciate your concern but like Chinaski said, we donít lay awake at night waiting on the big one. If itís going to happen, itís going to happen.

Iím prepared with food and water storage and essentials, a large first aid kit (that is equipped to handle more than just scrapes and bruises), a small generator, an emergency radio that can be hand cranked (if needed), stored gas and a BOB (if absolutely needed). I keep all my important documents in a safe so theyíre very easy to grab all at once. I donít let my car get below a half a tank. Ever.

So, please, spare me the fear mongering. While I am prepared, I am not losing sleep over it.

Yep, I sleep well in a war zone too. One time my buddy asked me if I heard a bigger than usual attack that happened during my sleeping time. My reply, "What attack". The same applies to earthquakes, tornadoes, and just about any other out of the ordinary thing. Make your peace and sleep well.

A lot of history could be learned by young people about a Saigon reunion being held in SoCal.
