Its the 7.2's that knock you out of bed or onto the grond that scare you! LOL when you can hardly stand and you see the telephone poles lean way over like they are going to touch the ground then come way back the other direction and you can see the road worp out of shape and back into shape in front of your very eyes,Like big four ft, ripples.. I kid you not and when it stops the road is flat again.. we are talking pavement that has rolled like a wave in front of your eyes LOL Scary!

Oh yes 3 of them one several hours after the first and then another in the middle of the night! we were all frightened those three were the biggest I have experienced!  You never forget the sight of concrete rolling up in front of you! cars rolling several feet back and forth it was a roller. not the jolt kind It Hit with a jolt and then rolled knocked me in the floor and I thought I was losing my balance and getting dizzy I was vacuuming the floor!

Oh Yes really scary the big ones.. The little ones make you take a position of safety cause sometimes the shake a little then BOOM they hit really hard and shake hard.. They are never the same as the one before in their movement, similar but different!

Well My grandparents and thousands of others say this is earthquake weather. we refer to the humidity that seems to be present right before it usually is warm but sticky not quite sultry, but then also a weird quietness before the quake.. animals behave weird also dogs and cats act neurotic.. it's weird I can't really explain.

I love both the beach and the country so it would not matter, but a tropical Island sounds scrumptious!

Probably about a 16 hour drive, but I personally think Bob Evans is worth it.
