Forest fires we got, but I've been in California nearly 40 years now and never felt an earthquake.
That's because I spend most of my time inland--the great Central Valley, an old dired-up lake bed. Earthquakes are not impossible here, but they are pretty tame. I was in my car at the time of the Loma Prieta shake in 1989. My stationery friends felt it, but I, never a ripple.
If ever I am in an earthquake, I hope I am in an elevator with a complete stranger so I can say:
"Did the Earth Move for You, Too?"
