I know how you feel, man. Glad you rode it out.
Glad you are OK, Maine_Coon but if you were only there 14 years, you missed the big one, on October 17, 1989 at 5:17 pm
I didn't. I was living there back then, and just off work at 7th and Bryant, and when the ground roared up around me, and you could see the street turn into waves, as the phone poles shook crazily and the transformers on them all exploded, for about the first 10 seconds, I thought FOR SURE I would be killed, lurching in the street as if blind drunk.
AN Asst., SF District attorney I knew, had just bought wine and cheese on Chestnut St. in the Marina, and walked around the corner onto Fillmore street when it hit.
Before her very eyes, she saw her apartment (the one at the corner of Northpoint) collapse to the ground. She was damned lucky she wasn't in it, and had gone to get the wine and cheese first, on the way home.
