it's times like these that i just shake my head in regards to all the California bashing i constantly hear and see. people east of the Rockies are always saying that you have to be crazy to live in California, because of earthquakes.
the last time we had a significant earthquake disaster, was 20 years ago this month.
yet the Midwest has disasters every year, from severe thunderstorms to ice storms to large floods to blizzards to numerous tornadoes to extremely cold weather that's currently happening.
heck, a single tornado or hurricane has often killed more people than the Northridge earthquake did, which was the last big earthquake 20 years ago.
as i sat outside in 70 degree sunny weather yesterday, while the entire eastern U.S. was in deep freeze, i thought that i'm perfectly fine with having an earthquake every 20-30 years.
versus yearly disasters that i mentioned above.
by the way, here's a map of Presidential Disaster Declarations from 2000 to 2010. notice all the dark areas east of the Rockies.
and people think that California is Disaster Central.
