    Not even a half hour ago I felt these two little tremors. I thought it was someone from downstairs slamming things, until the guy at the back of the house said he felt them too.

    A roommate just got home, saying his whole classroom shook.

    I felt the first one, I'm less than 5 miles from the epicenter: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/Maps/US2/37.39.-124.-122.php San Andreas is feeling her oats today.

    The magnitude of the Japanese quake has left me wondering if the whole Ring of Fire isn't going to start lighting up soon. [​IMG]

    I wouldn't worry about it, Seattle has a much larger gun aimed at her than we do.

    j/k, tonight I'm double checking my fresh water, canned food and gold bullion supplies.

    Just a friendly reminder that today is the 105th anniversary of the 1906 quake...

    I move there at the end of June.

    Think 'bedrock & elevation' .

    Long term Seattle probably has the worst odds of any major US city - volcanoes, mega-quakes and tsunamis, it's got 'em all.

    Go to the Dollar Store and stock up on water - the more the better. You'll thank yourself. Having been in some doozies, there was an immediate run for H2O at the markets right after the quake.

    I think you got the bad end of the deal.
