Yeah, at least hurricanes you can run from. But let me tell you: (almost)nothing is worse than evacuating, especially when it becomes mandatory. I don't know if you've ever done it for any reason, but not only do you have to fit days worth of water in your car, you have to bring clothes, photos, important documents, food for pets, and usually you have to fit everything, including pets and people, into one car. And you have to pick what you take, knowing that everything you don't bring may well be destroyed and never seen again, and you know you can't take every sentimental thing with you. You also know that, as you drive away, this may be the last time you see your house and neighbors. Then you drive. For days. And some times, even more days. Traffic is always horrific, at least until you get half way into a neighboring state. Then you find a place to stay, and listen to the always horrendous news reports, which have a 50/50 chance of being true, and wait. The waiting is the hardest, because there is no way to really know what's going on until you get down there. And then you come back to what ever is left, and depending on what is there, it gets instantly better or worse.
I miss earthquakes. Those come without warning, but they also come without waiting. You can skip all of that and go straight to the recovery. Sorry for the rant, it just sort of happened. ^^'
