PSA regarding Carl and earthquakes

In reference to jumbach's posting about an earthquake and zarchasmpgmr's comment regarding the Northridge earthquake specifically, I thought I would mention something here.

If there is a major (read: 7.0+ and/or one with heavy damage) earthquake in SoCal, you can either expect me to be absent from this here journal for a while or using it to communicate with a lot of other people quickly. The absent bit is more than likely because I'll be working, given that I work for a major utility company in SoCal and work in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. This combination could lead to a very busy Carl. The other bit involves me using the journal as a quick status message board, at which point I'll probably have most posts plublic and available for anyone to comment on so that family and friends can check in.

Just sayin' up front that these are both possibilities.

Er...that comment was about Hector Mines, not Northridge.

Northridge was only 6.7 (and my father was injured, but didn't realize it until a couple of weeks later).

It must have been a slow news day a couple of days ago, when the front of our local paper's national section had a story saying that California will have a major earthquake sometime in the next 50 years. That's a pretty safe bet--rather like saying that Florida will get hit by a hurricane sometime in the next 50 years. It's not if, it's when.

On a completely unrelated note, something Dione and I were discussing yesterday: Will y'all be doing the M.S. Walk again this year, specifically, taking sponsorships? It's about that time and I haven't seen you post about it.
