I was at the liquor store and there was a lady and her husband there. She stated she was from Oklahoma and then said "How do you live in California with all of the earthquakes"? She said with an expression on her face like I was insane. I laughed and explained to her that an earthquake can shake up your house, the freeway that collapsed was due a lot to poor planning most damage is fixable and and there area affected is very localized. On the other hand a tornado will pick up your house and drop 5 miles down the road in a pile of kindling, it will do this to entire towns in one go. Seriously I would take an earthquake over a tornado ANY day. I said this while I was looking at her like she was insane for wanting to go back to Oklahoma. I spent a month in Oklahoma and I think I stared at the skies for 30 days straight!
