100th Anniversary of the big earthquake
San Francisco is commemorating the devestating earthquake and fires that happened on this day in 1906. They had ceremonies this morning, at about 4:30 AM when the time of the earthquake hit. People dressed in period costumes, and I especially liked the Chinese opera ones, they're so beautiful! Of course I'm watching this all on the morning news. I especially like the then and now shots at different streets in the City. There are even some survivors still alive today who have been on and talked about their experience. Of course at that time they were just tots, and it amazes me that they would have any memory from that age, but it's neat to see centarians (sp?) talk about that.
