I was out in California in the 90's when the Sierra Madre Quake and the Northridge Quake took things apart. Then the riots, then the fires, then the mudslides. All four seasons in other words. It was a lovely state, I hated to leave. <snort> Almost said that with a straight face...

We left a few days later.  We were actually held on the tarmac because the air space for so many miles had to be cleared while the President flew in to survey the damage.

I don't want to go back.  Maybe for a short visit....but maybe not at all.  Seeing the ground moving really shook me up.

I'd rather have a tornado, you get some warning when it's coming. Earthquake, oops, bridge is gone... Ahhhh!!!!!!

I'd rather have a tornado,

I've had the sirens and such go off for my area.  I've even sat in the bathroom a time or two.  One was spotted near the house we were living in---but we were at work at the time.  But, I haven't seen one nor had any damage because of one.  I hope I never do.

When we are on any long bridge my husband laughs when I tell him I'm nervous.  He hasn't been as close to one collapsing as I've been.  The thought of one falling away from under me really scares me.....so I try not to think about it when we are physically on a bridge.

We live in Gladstone, Missouri, about three blocks down from where a big tornado whipped through and wiped out dozens of houses. It was about two blocks from us that houses lost half their shingles. It was another two blocks over from there where the kids were living that several houses and old trees were lost. I have a map of the path here somewhere, maybe I'll post it. It looks scarier when you can actually see the path of the tornado in relation to where you were...

ohhh....I bet that was very scarey.

Chris and his family lived in Overland Park for a short time.  I don't remember when or for how long...but I think it was when his Dad worked as a buyer for Bass Pro Shops.

I found the map.

The National Weather Service had THIS map.

I put dots on it for our house in green and the kids apartment in purplish-pink to show you the path of the tornado in relation to us and posted it HERE.

OMG!!  That is way too close for my comfort....actually it's close enough that I would add tornodo to my close brush with nature tales.

I'm so glad you and your family were safe.
