Subject: RE: BS: you don't often get to see an earthquake
Sound exciting, Slag. Is your water heat anchored and do you keep shoes by your bed? What's the general attitude towards quakes in your area?

In a way I would rather live where you live than in the New Madrid area. You understand why there are quakes and a certain amount of monitoring can be done - certainly with the volcano. In the New Madrid zone, there is no real understanding of what the mechanism is, so how can people know what to look out for?
