Notes from the Deckle Edge
Taking in the unique architecture in Seattle is not to be missed. Inside and out, the Seattle Public Library is designed for the curious. You might consider popping in and reading a New Yorker article about earthquakes statistics for the Pacific Northwest. We asked locals about their experiences but, not surprisingly, were told they hadn't experienced an earthquake. The typical response was "We don't have them here." Reportedly the last of the really large earthquakes in the area was in 1700...and it was epic causing a large tsunami in Japan. The odds of another catastrophic earthquake in the next 50 years is 1 in 10. I wouldn't let this information deter you from enjoying the natural beauty and cultural sights while you are there. You might also consider taking Seattle's Underground Tour. The locals we met highly recommended this as a noteworthy destination. You might want to end the day eating fried clams at Ivar's which is a recommendation that came straight from my Dad. Back to my brushes.
