Its funny how earthquakes have never bothered me (well except when I was little) until I became a mommy, now I drop what I'm doing and run to my sons room... Nothing can fall on him in there but there is a desk with a hutch unit on top that is not secured (he doesn't play in there right now his room is only for sleeping) so if it falls I know it will scare the crap out of him! I use to say that the only way I'm getting out of bed for an earthquake is if it knocks me out! lol Well not anymore!!
