11. Driving home from work in Santa Rosa

Didnt feel it because of car but my radio went out and when it came back on, emergency broadcast and i raced home to kids about 100 mph. Hanging plant was swinging and all my daughters china figurines fell down and broke.

We lost electricity for 4 days and watched news on neighbors 3 inch battery tv radio. His mom crossed bridge that time of day for coomute and he didnt hear from her for 2 hrs so tense.

Only few had cells then.

I guess i should add my husband who I wasnt with at the time, was driving Bart and the rails started swerving trees shaking and light poles banging. He hit stop and they had to sit for many hours in train until they were allowed to move to get out.

Afterward he was picked to go at 2 mph to check tracks, said he saw a sight not many people will ever see pure black and only stars all night in SF and whole area.
