Has Anyone Ever Been Asleep Or Laying On A Waterbed

And felt an earthquake and knew what it was immediately? I was just curious to know if one could tell the difference between the normal rhythm of the bed and an earth moving experience. I believe that it is one of those things you would need to experience to know for sure. I know in my experience, the smallest of things can set a water bed in motion. Including a big enough step on the frog,hehe.

I've slept on a waterbed and hated it LOL everytime I moved the whole bed moved and took a little while to settle - hated that.

I know what you mean. Those beds can be quite busy. They are fun when you are young, but as you get older, they can be down right frightening. Well, I believe that they have differing amounts of firmness to them now. Did that make sense?

I think so. Just as well I was house sitting for a friend - I would never buy one for myself.

I have never experienced this..I have slept in a water bed but not in an Earthquake zone.. It doesn't take much to set it in motion...I slept with my Aunt when I would visit her and she had a King waterbed..She would use the bathroom and then come back in to bed and it felt like I was going to end up on the floor...

That is so funny. You forced me to LOL on that one. I know exactly what you mean about ending up on the floor. In my younger days, I would drink and sleep on a friend's water bed. You must be young and silly to do things like that.

Hi Rozie37! Never had slept on a water bed, only on regular beds. haha..I have experienced laying on a regular bed when an earthquake happened and that was so many years ago. I felt dizzy even if I was laying in bed at that time, I guess it is because the intensity of the earthquake was around 7 something. With water beds, I would not really know but my guess is you will feel it for sure. Take care and have a nice day! lovelots..faith210

Water beds to me, are fun when you are young. But I have certainly outgrown that thrill. I need to have more stability when I sleep now. Could it have been fear that made you dizzy? A 7 is a pretty serious earthquake. Glad to know that you survived it.

I have heard about waterbeds and I certainly want one of my own! Thankfully I have never been involved in an earthquake and I hope I never have to go through this experience. I would love to have a waterbed though but this will be impossible as I assume that they cost the earth! Andrew

No actually, the last time I checked they were cheaper than regular beds. Just make sure you stay sober when you sleep on one.

I have been sleeping on a water bed for close to 30 years. Once you get used to it, movement doesn't normally disturb you. But then something odd would probably wake you up. I have felt 1 earthquake where I live, but I had been sitting on the couch. I don't know if my bed made waves or not, I never thought about checking on it. I was stunned, didn't know what to think, but knew it as an earthquake. I live in Ohio, its not like I am in earthquake country like you are. I would not want to experience a big quake, thats not my cup of tea.

Well now, since you must be a water bed expert, you must promise me that the next time you feel the earth move, you will run to your bed and then tell me of the experience the next day. Just kidding, water beds can be a lot of fun to sleep on.

So you knew that it was a different kind of movement. That is so interesting. Thank you so much for sharing your story.
