San Andreas... makes one wonder

Was it prophetic?
With earthquakes in Japan and Ecuador and seismologists discussing all the worldwide faults it makes one pause and wonder.
The dialogue on the recent news was not that dissimilar than the movie above, about that notorious fault in California with saying not if, but when these massive earthquakes will be happening.
Frightening as that statement may seem the reality is that they are saying when more often than not, but still random, no rhyme or reason.
Sure we cannot harp on that which appears to be a definitive reality, since now the people in the field say that they can determine better before when and where, but in enough time?
Although, it has to make one wonder why weren't the people of Japan and Ecuador notified if it could be possible, and where should we go/run to, what can we do to prepare ahead of time and I still have so many questions that keep going unanswered!
The death toll horrendously for those earthquakes is nearing three hundred with thousands of more people injured!
 
Tornadoes are still the one natural disaster that we have the least ability to be informed on ahead of time. Our local station is quite happy that they were able to give people an eighteen minute heads up on local tornadoes in Cape Coral Florida back in January, and yes those eighteen significant minutes for a tornado warning was/is a matter of life or death and it worked! But there were safe places to go.
Supposedly earthquakes and volcanic eruptions as well as tsunamis are predictable within fairly workable time spans to evacuate, but to where.

So much concerns us all these days from terrorism to these natural disasters to drive-bys (shootings), home invasions, you name it the world can be terrifying!

Apathy can be mentally healthy, but not logical when in a part of the world where any of the above mentioned things fall all too regularly and let's face it that means most all of us.
Albeit, I agree that it is something that we must step back from and think of ways to handle the "what ifs" with cool calm composure and to realize that being knowledgeable in any situation is the smart way to go; ignorance is never bliss in my opinion!

Our hearts and prayers must be with all the people including our own who also have had to deal with deadly weather across the USA with recent more tornadoes, floods continuing, and for the people in Japan and Ecuador while having to search for survivors in the rubble and their injured survivors and of course prayers for their dead and those families.

On this note of heart aching for all who suffer, allow me to be the very first to wish all of you a very happy healthy safe and peaceful good night and ask you all to kindly count all your blessings and share all those overages with you know whom and we will too!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
