Brace Yourselves This Thursday: On 10-21, at 10:21 AM, Sirens Will Blare for the Great CA ShakeOut Earthquake Drill

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

You know what Mad Men’s Don Draper would say about this Thursday’s Great California ShakeOut Earthquake Drill? He’d say that if it was really all that great, then you wouldn’t need to have the word “great” in the name.

But no matter, all’s you have to do now is make a mental note and then when All Hell Breaks Loose on Thursday, 10-21, at 10:21* AM you can tell those around you to keep calm because it’s just a drill.  

Or just plug your ears – that’s the other option:

And here’s a visual aid the boys in the Art Department just whipped up:

And here’s the FB and the Twitter.

And here’s a peek at part of the Facebook Wall:

The Great California ShakeOut: Imagine a civic group is hosting a huge potluck. Volunteers issue invitations, set up tables & put out plates. What if 100 families are expected & come, but only 10 families bring a potluck dish & the other 90 don’t? Can you see how this type of scenario could impact the aftermath of the next quake? If your friends… are not registered for the ShakeOut, please invite them today! Be a friend. Help others prepare!”
And here’s the first reply:
Tony Willis I know that i am going to eat and so are my dogs.”
O.K. then. That’s the spirit, Tony!
All right, see you Thursday. Shake Baby, Shake.
*This could be a reference to the October 21, 1868 Hayward Fault Earthquake but I don’t know.
