    Gosh, that sounds so scary! I’ve never experienced an earthquake and hope never to! *knocks on wood* And even more scary as a kid and your parents unable to come home. Thank goodness it turned out okay for you. Such a tragedy…

    Nature can be so scary sometimes!

      It doesn’t have to be an earthquake, but any kind of natural disaster can happen, regardless. Before moving here, while my family and I used to live in the Philippines, we always had tropical storms around this time, and they’re pretty unpredictable as well. In fact, there is one over there right now.

      But luckily, earthquakes don’t happen every year unlike tropical storms and hurricanes, but then again, they can strike anytime. Speaking of Dwayne Johnson, he was originally from Hayward, the city next door up north from my town, so before that San Andreas movie, he also experienced this same earthquake as me those 27 years ago.

      *hugs* That is one childhood memory that I have that really sticks out from all my other childhood memories. No peer pressure/bullying/stupid immature kid stuff memories can compare to what I’ve experienced those years ago. Tropical storms are bad enough, but earthquakes and tsunamis (caused by earthquakes) seriously takes the cake out on this one.

      I was a bit annoyed when there were people around kept talking about how scary the San Andreas movie was when it first came out last year. The movie may have taken place in both L.A. and the Bay Area (considering the San Andreas fault stretches from the Bay Area down to SoCal), but the ones that had the most scenery/damage was the Bay Area (I read that it was because they were basing the event from 10/17/89 earthquake).

      The reality is, I’m not really afraid of the San Andreas fault. I’m more afraid of the fault that’s parallel to the San Andreas and located right next to my old college/university and just a few tad minutes away from my house (Hayward Fault).
