I remember that day well. I missed the whole fucking thing!

At the time, I was living in San Leandro (just a few miles north of the ^^ that ^^). About an hour before the earthquake, I boarded a plane to Chicago for a long-deserved vacation.

As we were reaching altitude, the pilot made an announcement:

Ladies and gentlemen, you're all probably wondering about the score at Candlestick Park right now. I do not have that information, but we have just received word that a massive earthquake has hit the Bay Area. The only confirmed report of damage we have at this time is that the Bay Bridge has collapsed.
