Jeni, I have some relatives that live in the LA area as well as a few others that live in the SF Bay area. Quite a few years ago I visited with them and I got into a discussion with one of my cousins comparing the Northeast to California. He tried to compare our snow storms to your earthquakes. I just couldn't imagine how he could compare the two.
Anyway, I just looked at your page (again) and saw that you say that you are not only from Cabo but also OC, California. At first I wasn't sure what you meant by OC (Uh Duh) but then I quickly figured out that you meant Orange County. I imagine that you still get Ground Trembles out there. Are they frequent?
