Are you insured against such a catastrophe?

Hell no! It's California! I'm insured against earthquakes, theft and weed smoke!

One measly tornado...they can only move as fast as, and in the direction of where ever the storm is.

Yes, I see - I did not think that you guys got Tornadoes. Can you do anything to mitigate the threat - you know shut the window and doors (slightly pathetic suggestion I think) etc. ... Get in the storm cellar? Any how I hope it misses you.

They are though, pampered by the warmth, they just have a shaky ground which isn't that terrifying.:p

So after surviving the 42 degrees here yesterday, it's now 19, cloudy and a chance of rain.:thumbsdown:
On the one day I was heading to the beach with friends. Now we're going to just go "drive near it and have lunch".:shakefist:

Former IL resident agrees with you. What a bunch of wimps!

Granted, the 1-story ranch homes I lived in never had basements, and all we got were tornado watches in Jackson County...but still.

In the past week we've had two, and 1 water spout. Probably a lot more that I haven't heard of.

Forgive us for carrying on despite the fact that the ground could disappear from under our feet at any second.

You should mention earthquakes. :p I went through a couple quakes in my childhood growing up in SoCal.

Yes it seems like people have forgotten that we do have a history of rather nasty quakes.

California. Where shit like this is normal:

I live right in the middle of these! Yay!

I probably feel 2 or 3 noticable quakes a year. Sometimes stuff falls over, usually pots and stuff just bangs together and the windows rattle.

Just back from the store with a bottle of champagne. Some co-workers and I are having a little "party" later tonight to mark another co-workers leaving.

When you say "party" in quotation marks like that it makes me think what you're actually having is an orgy. ;)
