    If it’s not an earthquake, it’s a 100-year draught, or wild fires, or the continuing threat of a devastating tsunami. Toss in horrendous traffic jams and paying some of the highest prices for housing and taxes on the planet, and you really have to wonder why anyone in their right mind would actually want to live in California!

    I live here in Oakland because I got tired of the tornados and floods during the ten years I lived in the St. Louis area. Oh, yeah, and the earthquakes on the New Madrid fault, in the Midwest, are fewer and farther between, but wa-a-a-ay worse when they occur. And New Madrid is seriously overdue for another 8.0 or bigger quake.
