Question #60

Q: Have you ever been in a flood, tornado, snowstorm, earthquake, or other natural disaster?

A: I have thankfully never been through a tornado... that scared me, but maybe because I just know what I have seen on tv and not lived where I would maybe experience them often. I know other people that have never been through an earthquake think the same thing and I don't think they are a big deal. I have never been in a flood that caused major damage... there was a lot of water, but not to the point where it damaged our home or cars or anything like that. It made the power go out... that is about it.

I have also been through earthquakes. Most of them were small.... you feel them for a few seconds and that is about it. I grew up practicing earthquake drills and bomb threats. Nice right? I have been through one bad earthquake where it woke me up in the middle of the night from my bed shaking and I looked outside and everything was shaking. It was scary and cool at the same time. It knocked some things over in our house... but that is about it. It also made the power go out for 3 days and we didn't have to go to school. I remember we had to use all of our food in the fridge and stuff like that. It was quite the experience but I don't remember ever being scared.
