With over 200+ dead in storms across the Southeastern US and that number climbing, my brain is kinda distracted. But a "friend" on FB asked people:
At the tender age of four, my world shook. A 6.8 magnitude quake moved Southern Italy, my parents both US Navy were stationed in Naples and had left me with friends for a short trip. I vividly remember the shaking and the mad dash down the packed stairwell from the apartment some floors above ground level and wanting my mama and daddy. 1980 was the year I learned of the brute force of Nature.
