^^ Seriously funny ... oh, the heartbreak and struggle ... bringing forth the will to survive from such remarkable people as could be found nowhere else ... our thoughts, hearts, and prayers go out to all those suffering ...

I was close to Hollister during the 1989 Quake. That was a bad one...

That may have been the Tehachapi quake of July 1952, one that I recall quite well. Was living at that time in Elizabeth Lake, not that far away from it, and it really jolted us. Since then have experienced every single major SoCal earthquake, have not missed a one, they all occured when I was here, never when I was away during my Navy service. Am very blase about quakes, and do not really fear them. Figure that if I am still here when the shaking stops, then things are okay. If not? W-e-l-l ----???

I'm practically on top of the SAF and very near a number of the Santa Cruz Mountain thrust faults ... I know exactly what you are "feeling!" - LOL!
