We had to "call" the telecon on account of earthquake -- it must have lasted at least 15 seconds, with a couple of aftershocks. Really, really weird to be talking with them during this. Lots of "Get under the desk" and "Whoa!" comments.

Im in downtown portland....Our building rocked and rolled . What a ride. I
hoofed it down the stairs and got as close to the river as possible:)-
Being a NYer at heart I know the nightmare of falling buildings.

Current reports have it pegged at a 7 centered just south of seattle. Cell
circuts are jammed. I cant get a call out to my folks. Landlines fare a
bit better, but not much. Calls into seattle are near doa.

More as it shakes out.
