Yesterday's quake reminded me of the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake in San Fransisco. We were a good distance from the epicenter but still felt it. I remember I was at a friend's house and we were outside. All of the sudden it felt like the ground was rolling. Later when I was at home, this was on the news. It's crazy to think that a bridge just snapped. I still get nervous driving over it.
I was actually more scared yesterday than I was back then. As a kid, I wasn't thinking about the ramifications of an earthquake and my parents controlled how much of the news we saw. Now, I can't stop thinking about the possibility of the "The Big One". I miss being young and naive.
