Christmas Ornaments - "San Francisco Tram"

Posted by Picasa

I have been privileged to enjoy several memorable trips to San Francisco. Can any trip to SF be anything but memorable?

The scariest event took place on one of the trams. I was in SF for a Convention of Critical Car Nurses and several of us headed down to the waterfront one evening after a long day's session indoors. We inundated the place. There were so many of us on one tram that we were all hanging off the sides and holding on, just like in the movies. Suddenly the tram tried to stop. The brakes did not hold and we went sliding back down the hill. It was all too fast for anyone to jump off, so we just held on for dear life until we reached the bottom of the hill.

There was no screaming or panic....after all, we were all Critical Care Nurses....we figured no one could have been in better hands if something had happened.
