Where were you on the morning of Wednesday 27 February 2008? I’d like to be able to say that I was being moved by quaking crust of the planet beneath me. Sadly, as with the ‘Hurricane’ of 1987, I was asleep. That said, even if I lived in California at the time of the next big quake, I’d probably wake up the following morning, walk out my door, to find myself at the bottom of a very deep rift, such is the soundness with which I snooze.
