I'm all set.  I've spent a lifetime preparing for it by living over 2,500 miles away from the area.

/Be prepared.

Yes, we're ready!

Here in Charlottesville, Virginia we recently survived an earthquake much closer to us.

I think we can withstand one in Alaska.

I can deal with losing Alaska as long as it finds a way to take California with it.

FTA: "Cellphone users couldn't get a dial tone."

I've had a cellphone for years, and NEVER recall hearing a dial tone.

As much as I'm prepared for anything, I suppose. Which is to say, not really.

They should be consulting with Chile about how to deal with the destruction and disruptions of a major quake, but I don't expect much from a state that voted for Sarah Palin.

One of the more interesting tidbits about beer shortages from the 8.8 Chilean quake in 2010:

CCU (Compañía de Cervecerías Unidas) responded by increasing capacity of their plant in Temuco that did not suffer major damage during the earthquake and by importing beer from their factories in Argentina. 50 trucks with beer are reported to have reached Santiago from Argentina. In March 2010, ten CCU executives said that the country will not run out of beer and that within two to three months production levels would be normalized.

Chileans know how to prioritize in times of crisis.

Do we still depend on North Slope oil? If so, no. If not, yes.

I am also prepared for the Cascadia subduction zone to subduct.

I may not be prepared for the Great Azores Landslide to slide.
