Hmmmmmm, ok.

Which phones did you get? I bought some of the Unidens from them quite a while back. I love them. That intercom feature is a voice saver -- no yelling upstairs.

People here in town supposedly felt the Seattle quake a few years ago, I don't know I was in class trying to listen to a lecture at the time.



Just curious; I thought you lived further north . . .

yup! At my garage sale she asked how much I wanted for my Jeep, I think I'll sell it this year. I wonder if she still wants it.

These are also Unidens . . . one base set and two remotes . . .

I think all our phones are Uniden except for the trimline emergency power outage phone . . .

It's okay, I used to live close enough. Heck I've even been in CA for some small quakes and slept through them. (in a camp trailer in a driveway no less).

My junior high had a big crack in one wall from a CA earthquake, it happened when I was really little, I slept through that one too.

The only thing I felt from the 2 earthquakes (small) that we had while living in the Seattle area were large THUDS. We lived on a mountain so I reckon that lump of rock reacts differently than land at sealevel. They showed videos of that rocking and swaying.

We had one about ten years ago. I thought the furnace was blowing up because an earthquake never entered my mind. Just shook for a few seconds, rattled the utensils hanging on a rack.

Isn't a hurricane like a very very big tornado, just not as destructive for it's size and over water most of the time?

I've seen and been on the fringes of a tornado, in a car. It's scary. We were driving and had to stop. When it cleared, we went about two blocks and cars were overturned and telephone poles down.

We got caught by the western edge of one in '03 (can't remember it's name) . . . lost power for about 11 hours . . . winds in our area only hit 50-60 mph, slightly higher gusts . . .

Ha! I have! In Bar Harbor Maine. We saw the Aurora Borealis.
At first we thought it somehow was lights from a city rolling off the clouds. Then we realized there were no clouds and no city. Other people told us what it was. Color lights rolling across the sky, sort of like the way waves wash on the shore.
Not that bright, I think Maine is too far south for really good lights.

Intensity has more to do with solar activity . . . they've been reported seen as far south as North Carolina when conditions are just right.
