    Snow is better being seen from inside! Although it is thrilling to be out in a blizzard - just to check out what's happening.

    Now I'm just glued to the local news. And love how people are taking coffee and cookies to the reporters outside. Some reporters you can't even see with the storm!

    I, and everyone in the SF Bay Area, was wakened at 2:39am by an earthquake. It was centered in Berkeley, on the Hayward fault and was 4.5 on the Richter scale. Not a biggie, but you're always hanging on waiting to see if it will become the Biggie! Or a foreshock to the Big One. The Hayward fault is long past due for a major quake.

    So, while you guys are commiserating about snow, what about Meeeeeeeeee? I had to go through that!

    That's so scary, Punkin. I've never experienced an earthquake. We did have a slight one in downstate NY a few years back but it was ever so slight that I didn't feel it. Glad it was not a 'biggie.'

    ECM, I will tell you this about EQ's ...... having lived my entire life in Boston and been through snowstorms, ice storms, tropical storms, hurricane's etc etc ...... and now having been through many EQ's,

    some minor ones but THREE intense ones. The Easter Sunday 2010 which was a 7.2 ..... I will take an EQ any day over STORMS. EQ's last under a minute.

    Naaaa, way to much drama with snow. EQ's over in under a minute.

    You don't need to run to the store and stock up. There is no shoveling involved. You are never cold. The roads are never icy.

    Believe me I lived through it all. I could never go back to snow, ever.

    I'll take an earthquake over snow, tornadoes, hurricanes and all the rest of it ANY DAY. While the rest of the country is dealing with snow and cold, it's lovely and warm out here in CA - currently 72 and sunny. Plus, how often do we get earthquakes? Once every few years MAYBE and they're hardly ever very big (the last really big one with a notable death toll was Northridge and that was 20+ years ago!). How often do other parts of the country get terrible storms and tornadoes with tons of damage and fatalities? Every freaking year. IMO, there's no contest!

    We don't get much damage, it's built to withstand I guess. Hurricanes? never. Tornado once, 20 years ago..so I guess its what we get use to..
    I'd hate to live where my AC is on non stop..ugh!
