Living in SoCal, I know there are bound to be earthquakes. Its something I had to deal with living in Guam. I figure I could handle it here, too. And I think I have been doing pretty good these past 11 years. (or is it 12?) But this week has been quite a doozy. 2 in one week. That’s a little much if you ask me. OK, so they were only 4.7 and 4.1, but really? 2?
For months I have been seeing billboards asking me if I was prepared. Know what? I am not. Luckily, nothing terrible has happened to me, my loved ones or friends because of the tremors. But what if something did? I would be the person that you hear on the news– “Rice has lived in LA for 1/3 of his life and did nothing to prepare for Earthquakes, Hurricanes, or Terrorists Attacks. If only he would have been ready.”
So its time to take action, my friends! Lets get into gear and be ready. FEMA has a page of Earthquake preparredness. I’m sure there are many others. But I trust my government to know whats best. (insert sarcastic glance)
Will you join me?
