I've got a temp gig this week working a conference downtown. Unlike the bigger conferences that are typically held at venues like the Mascone Center, we're at the lovely Palace Hotel. The current structure was built a century ago to replace the one destroyed in the great earthquake of 1906. It is a marvel of Beaux Arts design, impressive enough to warrant it's own City Guides tour.

It was raining buckets when I went to work at 6AM this morning, but it cleared up completely before noon. This is the sky that greeted me when I emerged from BART this afternoon on my way home.
