  • Yes, when I lived in Ky. we lived through many devastating tornados. My SIL'S grandparents were killed during one of those tornados. They're very frightening!

  • No they haven't. It's scary how quick and easy it can happen though.

  • When I was 4 we lived through the Loma Prieta Earthquake aka 1989 San Francisco Earthquake. We lived in the Santa Cruz Mountains which was hit the worst. My mom and I were home alone and were hiding under the table. I told her to "Sing to Yeshua (Jesus) Mommy!" She looked at me like I was insane, but we sat there for an hour singing Shabbat School songs(Sunday School) while everything around us was falling and breaking.

  • Hurricane Hugo came through the Carolinas on our 4th anniversary. One or two of our trips to the Outer Banks involved hurricanes.

    My favorite grandma's house was hit by a tornado ... not much damage, thank goodness.
