    Living in CA a large portion of my life I remember the Borrego Mountain Earthquake of '68. It tossed me out of the top bunk bed. That is the 'first' earthquake I can remember. I was a freshman in H.S. that year. A creek not far away changed course.

    Did you ever see the movie Phenomena where Travolta predicts an earthquake. I get a giggle + giggle with that scene thinking of here in the San Diego area. I experienced them frequently a few years when I lived in Palmdale, Ca especially back in '68

    It is really odd how one feels the waves rolling along. I can share it is like being on a raft in the ocean. It has the same sensation as you feel the ground roll underneath you . . . really weird for sure. I bet the session had an interesting ending

    Frightening. Was that the first experience or the first major experience? In elementary school during the early 60's in Barstow we had earthquake drills where we dove under our desks. I wonder if they have those today? I Jump in a doorway still today
