Hey Ron, glad to hear you're allright, you had great luck making the 
trip fine and getting gas.

My experience with natural disasters mostly related to quakes, Chile is 
a land of earthquakes... a big one hits the country aproximately every 
ten years, but we have minor ones all the time. Regarding psychological 
effects, I had a very curious experience when I was in Maine: after 
about three months without any tremors, I started missing them. on one 
hand it's a subconscious fear that no minor shakes in a long time make 
it seem like a large one is building up. on the other hand, you sort of 
miss feeling that sheer energy of the earth, it connects you with it... 
somewhat like riding a wave.

BTW: Yes I'm back in my country http://www.flickr.com/photos/mantruc/
