I couldn't figure out why so many homes here had a brick facade but now I realize it is to ensure nobody takes flight to Oz.
Although, sometimes the noise is so scary I think Oz might be a better alternative.
If you live in Southern California, let me just reiterate for you that in terms of weather, you are extremely sheltered.
Growing up people would always ask me if I was afraid of earthquakes. To someone not living on a fault line it seems like the most terrifying potential natural disaster.
Never in my life has an earthquake been severe enough for me to stop whatever I was doing.
In my little mind, the only thing that could be worse would be something water-related such as flooding or epic snow (Hi, Midwest, love you!)
The wind howls with a vengeance.
If you've made it this far I applaud you for surviving the world's most boring blog post. I promise to come back with something bigger and better...patience grasshoppers.
I don't make promises I can't keep. *Wink*
