There’s An Earthquake Drill Today That We’re Not A Part Of
I will admit that I'm not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer. (The fact that I posted pictures of dogs in Star Wars costumers on Facebook earlier today should prove that point) But, I can't understand why our area is not a part of the "Great ShakeOut" earthquake drill today. Last time I checked, we still live on top of one of the most potentially violent earthquake faults in the world. Hello? McFly? New Madrid Fault anyone?
I'm not normally a fan of drills, but gee whiz, even Guam gets to participate today. The central US (hey, that's us!) gets to do a drill in February. Yeah, like I want to do an earthquake drill in the snow.
If you have a few minutes, here's a video that is sure to scare the marbles out of you.
All kidding aside, being aware that we live in a potentially dangerous earthquake fault area is a good thing. Have a contingency plan with your family. Know what you would do in the event that we get hit with a major quake. It will happen someday. We just don't know when.
