I was living in Oakland when this occurred. We were on our way back to the mission house from a vacation at Lake Tahoe. We were just coming into Oakland when our van started wobbling on Interstate 80. I though we had a flat tire, so I pulled over to look. I noticed a couple other cars pulled over thinking the same.
The normal way home would have been on this double-decker Nimitz Freeway. Something told me to go the MacArthur Freeway instead. From where we were, we would have had no exits until we were on the upper deck of the Nimitz. I noticed pebbles beneath each underpass on the MacArthur Freeway and then knew we had an earthquake. The Lord didn't want us into that mess on the collapse.
You know, I may be getting older, and my memory isn't quite what it used to be, but I swear I cannot remember making fun of old people like this and others have done. Can't remember it being a thing of laughter between my friends and I. Just sayin'.
