As it happens I live quite near the extension inland of the Rose Canyon fault, which topographically speaking has provided some lovely park like canyon trails for Maggie to romp in.

Should the fault let go in some hyperdramatic way, it would probably be cataclysmic for Maggie, and for me, and for my dear friends and neighbors here in sunny San Diego. If it causes snow, ultimately, by disrupting our little anomaly, I probably won't be around to care much. I will be swamped by seabed or hilltop removal on a grand scale. My Martin and my banjo, my Prius and my Stetson, all crushed to oblivion by the indifferent waves and massive debris of catastrophe.

On the other hand, if I move away, sell at the top of the market, and settle into the lovely rolling hills of North Carolina's Piedmont, or some such place, I could rest easy for my remaining years.

Really, it's six of one and half dozen of the other to me. I have lived many lifetimes that ended much worse, and have seen planets die and stars give birth to fiery ruination for parsecs in all directions. So I am not too concerned.
