    My drama teacher said that some guy said that the next major earthquake was gonna hit bakersfield CA.

    Within 3 days of the next full moon.

    aka Tonight.

    Also, he talked about the weird weather we've been having (40 degree mornings and nights, 70 degree days) and how those are warning signs...

    And peoples animals have been going missing like they know something is up.

    I don't know. I left Calif. thinking Earthquakes and Brushfires were behing me, now it's Tornados and hail.
    Oklahoma haw been declared a disaster area due to BRUSHFIRES, 10 MILES AWAY, SOME ONLY A FEW. What's up w/ that?

    BTW, I've never been in a predicted earthquake and I've seen my share.

    Wether like that happens almost all the time, here in New England we call it Spring and Fall, where my wife's parents live in the upper panhandle of FLA they call it winter. 30 degrees difference between day and night is on the high side of normal for times of moderate tempuratures (it doesn't happen nearly as often in very cold or very hot weather, but it's still not abnormal).

    And earthquakes have very little likelyhood of affecting atomospheric weather.

    My take on it is that people like to predict catastrophies like this because people have short memories of them being wrong and long memories of them being right by coincidence. Did he give a timeframe? How often do you actually have earthquakes in the area?
