I was out gallivanting around Miramar recently and I came upon a tsunami escape route sign. Leading up a hill naturally. It's a wee bit frightening to think about.
When a civil defence woman knocked on my door some time back and asked if I had an escape route, I said "Sure, get in my car and shoot on up the hill behind my house."
"Do you have an electric garage door?" She asked.
"Yes." I could see where this was going. If an earthquake preceded a tidal wave, I might not be able to get my car out of the garage. I would have to grab a bag that I could carry, instead of emptying practically the entire contents of my house into my car.
