Earthquake

Weekly Photo Challenge – Signs

Tsunami - Evacuation Route Sign, San Francisco, 2012

Tsunami – Evacuation Route Sign, San Francisco, 2012

I picked an old photo to join the Weekly Photo Challenge – Signs by Daily Post.  It was our family road trip in California, in 2012. Our first stop was San Francisco, and I remember how this sign remind me that we were just on the top of San Andres Fault.

Some days later,  when we were already in Monterrey, we experienced our first earthquake. Well, I really don’t have memories of this experience, because the right moment the earthquake happened my son and I were already sleeping. But my husband was awake and felt our hotel room shaking for a few seconds. When it was all over, he woke me up to tell what had happened. I got so scared that I couldn’t sleep that night.

For someone who had always lived in Rio de Janeiro, I’m definitely not used to this kind of geological phenomenon, and that’s why this street sign impressed me so much!

Have a nice week everyone!
