Yup! We here in Cali are known for our floods/fires/earthquakes! All three of which usually happen without warniing. We don't live in a flood zone (yea!) and although we are within blocks of oak scrub brush, we pretty much don't have to worry about the fires. But those earthquakes.... sheeesh! We haven't had one in our area for a long while, but we stay prepared with extra food, water, and have valuables or breakable "stuff" anchored down or placed so that they don't fall and break when the trembling moves them around.
Back in 1993 when we traveled the Southern states in the summer with our two kids, we stayed in Destin Florida. Our pictures show us enjoying the beautiful white sand beaches. That's also where my daughter and I (hubby and son would only watch - Chickens!) as we did a bungee jump. Neat memories
