Kids and earthquakes: your first quake memoryWhen I came home late from work the other day, my son was extremely excited. My guess was that it involved either "Star Wars," or something good on the cafeteria lunch menu.
"Did you feel the earthquake!" he exclaimed.
It was the 105th anniversary of the 1906 earthquake, so I had been thinking about mass casualties and a city in flames for most of the day. The tiny earthquake that arrived the same day felt to me like a sad reminder and a warning. (Better put some more Clif Bars in the disaster kit!) But I completely understood his excitement. When I was a kid, I got pretty stoked about earthquakes, too.
