Cape Flattery, Shi-Shi Beach, Ocean Shores, Long Beach Peninsula, highway 112 along the Strait...all have their own beauty. Oregon beaches are beautiful, but crowded in the warm months.

Not to get all doom and gloom, but just keep an eye out for the little evacuation signs and if the big one hit they say the roads are going to be in bad shape so your best bet is to walk/run to higher ground.

Place I'm renting in Kent is up on 'the hill'. It's pretty high up.

Don't worry about tsunami's in Kent. In fact most of the Seattle metro area has little to worry about. This is a coastal concern for sure, but most studies show that any tsunami's would be very weak coming into the mid and south sound. Some media like to scare, but it isn't realistic.

it's worth the risk being out here, if it happens it happens, if not, it won't. Could happen before I finish typing.... (it didn't) or a 100 years after I die.

Hey, Virtual...you are absolutely correct with that assessment. I think I posted that you would be coming to the area at the worst time of the year, and yes, the Seattle area (or Pugetropolis), is experiencing unusual cold and snow, but not unheard of. Believe me, it does get better. Traffic does not, but that is another story. I hope your new job at SeaTac is going well.
