What Recession?

While there’s talk of recession and even auto companies are trying to get in on the Federal cash giveaway, economic hardship didn’t seem apparent in San Francisco, which was bustling this weekend.  We headed down there for a brief visit, and between the hordes of people we saw everywhere we went (Ferry Building, Union Square, California Academy of Sciences, Ikea, etc.) and the chaos in most of the stores, it didn’t seem to reflect the current economic woes we keep hearing about.

That said, it was also unusually warm – 80 degrees in San Francisco proper on Saturday – so it might just have been the heat that made people crazy to swarm and shop.
