When we had the bigger one down here last winter...I slept through it, hubby felt... My bed doesn't move so much anymore

I was at the post office in Wasilla - which is always busy - so we had quite the OOOOHhhhh and AAAAAAaahhh from everyone standing in line when it hit.
Now THAT was the kind of quake I felt back in the days when I was on Adak.

I actually enjoy it when they are smaller than 5.0 magnitude. They are fun. However, when they start to get above 5.0, then they become more of a concern.

Of all the natural disasters that plague the North American continent, I will gladly take earthquakes over tornadoes and hurricanes.

I don't know... the unpredictability scares me somewhat. Generally speaking you can find out where tornadoes touch down every year and not live there. Or move away from a hurricane.
This, the earthquake comes when it pleases. I hope the latest scientific news are right. About results of the 3 year russian satelite scans of Earth, that there are high energy particle bursts coming out of ground few hours before earthquake strikes. This would explain how some animals seem to be able to predict it too.

Personally I love living on the edge. Volcanoes and earthquakes, avalanches.

My 16 y.o. son who was born and raised in Alaska asked me, "What was that?!" when the earthquake was over! What a goof!
