A whole lotta shaking going on

Friday, July 20, 2007

I’m thoroughly enjoying my 3 free days in San Francisco between conferences (if you can consider a day where I spend 2 hours on conference calls and another 2 hours on a client report to still be a free day): the weather is perfect and I’m staying at a lovely hotel in a great location.

I did have a strange and unexpected wake-up call this morning: a 4.2 scale earthquake centred across the bay in Oakland, but big enough to wake me out of a dead sleep at 4:42am. Everything shook for about 20 seconds, and the Hilton actually creaked — I’m sure that it’s built to do that in an earthquake (sweat) !
