Of the items on this list, the Earthquake Shakeout truly captures my imagination. Remember the little temblor felt up and down the East Coast in 2011? I do!

I was reclining on a cot and felt it shaking. My first thought was that one of my cats had run beneath it and was bouncing around. Then I noticed the model airplane that was attached to a ceiling light fixture — the airplane was swaying! That’s when I knew I had experienced an earthquake. Luckily for all of us, it was a relatively  minor incident.

Will the next one be as cute and harmless? Maybe not. October 20th is the day to practice for The Big One (also good if you’re moving out West.)
