Earthquakes 101

Earthquakes happen more often then we think. We just can't feel all of them. And they don't all happen in California, either; Alaska actually gets more major quakes than the "Quake Capital" of the USA! Back to Article

this morning a 4.7 richter earthquake came through while we were sitting inside the house. It sounded like a giant freight train was coming through the house for about 10 - 12 seconds. It was very scary. Everything was shaking and the noise was very loud. I will never forget that sound and that feeling. And it was only 4.7. What if had been a bigger one?

Does any of you have a great childhood? Well, I don't have most bad childhood, but back then I don't have any friends and nobody to play with. I don't have many friends in these days too. And that makes me empty inside. How about you?
