Where I grew up we often had earthquakes and not forest fires, but wildfires. School was cancelled for two days in my eighth grade year because of the wildfires surrounding our city. We all joked that, "Some kids get to have snow days? We get to have fire days."
Where I live now we have wind storms and are "at risk" for tornadoes, but I've yet to see one. I was so out of my element in high school here. We were told one day we were having a Tornado Drill. The teacher just went, "Okay. You all know what to do."
I was just sitting there dumbfounded, "Erm... duck under our desks, crouch down, and lace our hands together over our necks?"
Everyone looked at me like I was crazy, but I only knew earthquake drills.
