They are all so different.  When I took mine (in the dinosaur ages) it was all day and they watched me behind a window...I grew tired of the testing and the last 3 pages, I just started marking off everything and writing whatever was on my mind...I was sick of taking the test all day...I am sure he is much more intelligent than I was at that time and will be a good tester!

*le sigh*....I long to live by the sea !

It is a beautiful place to live.. California we don't worry about hurricanes here along our coast although we had one years ago.. But not as bad as some..

Earth quakes are and can be terrible and I live on the San Andreas fault line so it is quaky here, but I would be more terrified of a tornado!

I'm not a big fan of those either.  We get quite a few of them too.

Me too!  I have lived around them all my life and I know the destruction they cause and have been up close to a few before...it amazes me that people never take it seriously though such as my bossy here when I had to run an emergency plan here!  She was on the phone with me and said, "be careful" uh, don't you think that if the power went out and the siren's are blaring(meaning one has hit the ground within a few miles away) she would be much more concerned about just being thankful I am here running the show...

I have a whole procedure book on all disasters if they were to happen and what to do...I had to do it for my first job...no one knew what to do here!

That is pretty scary! I can no imagine my whole home lifted and wiped away.Earthquake may knock it down, but some how that seems milder..Thats odd huh? Maybe a fear of the unknown a bit.. had a lot of that lately.. I have never been through a tornado!

Yes, it is!  Sad too for most people who have suffered such a disaster.  Fearing the unknown would be pretty tough to get through too.  I am glad you have never been through one...I hope you never have to even go through an earthquake...Carolyn, have you been in a hurricane?

I've been through tornados and hurricanes. The last one was Dennis in July '05 - we did not evacuate and I was terrified.  It devasted our town.  This picture is just a few miles from our house.  Lots of homes and businesses were destroyed and the beach erosion was horrible, we were fortunate, we didn't have any damage other than some tree limbs down.

 

The bridge in the background goes to St. George Island.

I don't know how the bridge survived it, it's only a few years old.  Our roads didn't fare too well though.  Nice, eh?  Our house is about 2 football fields away from the road.

Oh my Gosh... That is horrible...The hurricane we had scared the holly crude out of me but weirdly enough all the energy made me feel hyper and exhilarated and alive.. it was weird! I wonder if that is adrenaline or fear, or actual electrical energy in the storm that causes that feeling!

Destruction is depressing....I am glad you were safe...I have a stepbrother named Dennis and I don't like him much!  About as much damage here that you see in the picture is as much damage as he has caused my mom in so many areas of her life...

Yes, it is, it is awful.  Now I have seen some earthquakes which have been pretty destructive and I am glad you guys haven't had any in a very long time.

Not any really big ones we have them everyday, but mostly very subtle unnoticeable..

Do you think it is unnoticeable as you are used to them?
