Cory, having lived all my life in CA, there are people like that every week. Yes, someday we will have another BIG ONE, but currently it is impossible to predict this scientifically with any accuracy. Many scientists say that the more frequently we have small ones, the less likely it is that we will have a big one, as the small ones reduces stresses across the fault lines.

We had one here in San Diego (actually in Baja) on 12/30/09 that we felt pretty well at work (with two good aftershocks) that was only a 3.4. People barely batted an eye as our building swayed.
