Just 19 years ago at 5:04pm a 7.1 magnitude earthquake changed my life.  The epicenter is in Nisene Marks Park here in Aptos, Santa Cruz County, Calif...3 miles from here as the crow flies.

I was the nursing supervisor on duty at our South County Hospital when it hit.  Crazy times...

Mother Earth...wow...

USGS has some good pics.  looking at them and remembering the event, it is  hard to believe that the damage and loss was not greater.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Once memory I have specifically was looking at a rose blooming, and thinking.."Here I am in the midst of this drama, and you have the nerve to continue blooming"...It was a humbling experience.  I wanted to just move away from here, even though Monterey Bay has been my home forever...I remember someone saying, "You can't run away from the Earth"...

it is, but what most don't know, even those who live here, is that the town of boring and surrounding area, are on top of the "boring vents".  the Boring Vents cover miles and are volcanic vents in the foothills of Mt Hood.  smiley

actually, i was talking about places like TX   Wink
