35 Years Ago Today

The Sylmar Earthquake certainly ranks as one of the most memorable news events of my childhood. I remember being awakened by the shaking very vividly. Here in Orange County there wasn't any particular damage, as far as I recall. School went on as usual that usual as it could be with everyone talking about the earthquake.

I also remember the odd coincidence that at school that morning the story scheduled for our reading lesson was about the Alaska Earthquake!
