Shaky ground

» 22 December 2003 » In Bay Area, Work »

Last Friday I got moved into a new cube. I have one all to myself, finally! This morning while setting up the cube I felt the building shake gently – and being used to that from my days at FAST, where the trucks passing on route 128 regularly affected the foundational equanimity of the building – did not pay much attention to it. But, turns out it was a fairly significant earthquake in central California, near San Simeon, about 6.4 in magnitude. Wow, my first quake since moving here.

    At least Californians are in good hands now with Arnold as Governator!

    Just remember to stand in a doorway, it’s the safest place in the event of an earthquake.

    Unless of course the building collapses.

    Since when do you use words like “equanimity”?
