  2. I don't know why but I love watching San Andres, correction I do know why, The Rock. I have seen it multiple times. It looks scary but some reading I did say California will not fall off into the ocean however it may one day become Alaska's neighbor. Very interesting stuff there.

    1. San Andres is an awesome movie, and you can't go wrong with The Rock.

  3. Great video, Chrys. You've done a lot of research and your novel, Seismic Crimes, reflected that. It was one of my favorites in your series. I live on the West Coast and we experience thousands of small earthquakes each year (tiny ones that are not noticeable) however, I have experienced the ones where everything shakes and furniture tips over. The biggest one was when I was a child. We're at risk here for a biggie. We keep a prepared bag and extra water in our storage room. Also, I read that keeping an extra pair of shoes under the bed is a good idea. In the event of a serious quake in the middle of the night, you may not want to walk barefoot through your home in case of broken glass etc. I thought this was a great idea. I'm going to put a pair of runners under the bed now :D.

    1. Thanks, Lisa! It's always interesting to know which book in my series is a favorite for readers.

      Having bags and water ready is smart. I have bags ready of things I wouldn't want to lose in case I ever have to evacuate due to a fire.

      Oh, yes, putting shoes by your bed is a great idea!

  4. I have to admit, I would not like living in severe earthquake zones like Japan. I have felt tremors here in Ontario 3 times. The last time, I was at work talking to a creditor in Welland. I suddenly felt the quake and it looked like the bricks(we have exposed brick) rolled. I told the creditor who didn't feel anything but then she felt it about 30 seconds later. which was interesting

    1. It's interesting how the shocks of an earthquake move and how far they can be felt.

  5. i used to work for gm in flint michigan and felt a slight tremor while at work, but with all the usual mechanical vibrations, most people didn't notice. i was surprised that michigan would have an earthquake, but since then i have learned many states other than california do. when i was thinking of moving from michigan my first state to visit was california, but i quickly changed my mind not as warm as i thought, very expensive and the ground moves. i can't imagine being there for the big ones.

    glad to hear you are slowly getting back to normal.

  6. I've felt a few earthquakes but none were very major (largest around a 5.5 in Southern Utah). I have felt others by volcanoes in Indonesia and in Nevada. When I lived in Nevada, there were a lot of shakes one January. One morning, around 6 AM, I was sitting in my bed, leaning back on the wall, reading when I heard a deep growl from the earth below. Virginia City is honeycombed with mines and I wondered if there was a cave-in somewhere. It sounded evil and the walls moved, but just for a few minutes.

    Glad you're getting better! Btw, how would you like to hear "Harold and the Purple Crayon" read in church :)

    1. I got shivers imaging that deep growl.

      Hearing Harold and the Purple Crayon read in church would be neat!

  7. 15 million tons of dynamite is A LOT!

    A few years ago our area felt the DC earthquake. (Apparently I was in a place where I didn't feel it, of course.) But when Mt. St. Helens blew in 1980, the force rocked all the way down through Oregon and we did feel that.

    1. I can only imagine the aftershocks everyone felt from Mt. St. Helens!

  8. Have I ever felt an earthquake? Just a sec, I'll stop laughing in a sec...

    Hope all is well after the surgery.

  9. I am now totally convinced that I don't want to live anywhere near the earthquake. Hope you're feeling better!!

  10. We had the tiniest earthquake a few years ago. It was the first I'd ever felt. I thought a semi had wrecked into the phone pole outside. It shook the house like it had been struck by lightning, only it was a sunny day.

    1. If I felt a tiny earthquake, it would take me forever (probably until hearing about it on the news) to figure out what it was.

  11. I've been in a few natural disasters. A "3" is the highest Earthquake I've been in, which isn't much.

  12. I still love hearing your voice :)

    I've been through two very, very minor earthquakes. One in NY of all places. We thought a truck drove by with a heavy load but it was actually an earthquake.

    I worked with someone who was on the bridge that they kept showing in 1989. He was behind the car that fell in. If memory serves, he was in a red van/mini van. Something like that. Scary!

    1. LOL! Thanks!

      You're not the first person to say they thought it was a big truck that caused the minor vibrations. Interesting.

      Oh my gosh! That is scary!

  13. I have never been in an earthquake or felt tremors, but I have been in a tornado situation. I ran down to the basement! Lucky no damage! Hope you're feeling well! Big Hugs!
