Well, another “event” made the news while I “was in town”. I was out in San Jose last week to do some work for BAE Systems, and was sitting in the hotel when the building started shaking pretty good. Not enough to knock much down (a couple things fell, but it wasn’t too bad). Pretty surprising, and pretty quickly over.
I’ve been in a few earthquakes before, so I wasn’t too bothered, but when one hits that fast and quick, I got everything I’d need for “a night outdoors” (jeans, socks) and the “portable office” (my computer bag with all the other stuff in it) and put it by the front door for when the “bigger quake” hit. Luckily it never came….
PS: Uncle Tom, I did have to get permission from the mayor to come back to this city too! That’s four!!!
