I'm sorry I spelled northridge wrong in the title.

Between the earthquakes and the forest fires I'm putting a petition together to have our state nicknamed "The Shake and Bake State". :thumbsup:

I have one earthquake experience that I enjoy telling about. Back in the mid seventies I was sharing a four bedroom house with four other friends, Walt and I were in the garage with the garage door open on a beautiful spring day working on our separate projects. Our mail box was on the garage door so when the postman came by he walked in to deliver the mail and stopped to talk, during this conversation the postman leaned over onto the sissy bar on the back of Walt's Harley which didn't sit particularly well with Walt. While this guy is talking we had an earthquake, not a bad one, it did cause a portable dish washer to dance out in the middle of the floor, and the postman took his arm off of the sissy bar as if he had been shocked, but not a bad one. We had the radio on and what seems like was immediately after Carol King's "I feel the earth move"started playing, and without missing a beat Walt looks at the postman and tells him "that's what you get for messing around with my bike".

Good thing this summer isn't as hot as the last one though, last years was brutal. I'm in Burbank (about 2 or so miles from Griffith Park) and felt the quake, at first it felt like someone was shaking their foot then it got a little bit stronger then stopped. I'm glad that was the only one because I got flash backs from the scary Northridge quake. :flowers:

Earthquakes: When Mother Earth has gas.

We here in San Francisco had a pretty good shake a few weeks back. Woke me out of a sound sleep. I always wonder what the tourists think after one of our mini-quakes. We have at least 5 or 6 a year. Residents just roll over and go back to sleep, but I wonder what the farm boy from Nebraska is thinking in his room on the 20th floor of the Holiday Inn down the block :thumbsup:

I seem to remember an analogy about San Francisco being like granola, if you took out all the nuts and flakes all you would have left are the fruits.
