The cosmos got the last laugh on Tuesday night in San Francisco.
KarlTheFog, which often comes on little cat feet, charged in like a mountain lion and wrecked the much ballyhooed debut of the artistic bank of lights atop the new South of Market skyscraper housing billionaire Marc Benioff’s company.
“Can’t see anything,” said Thomas Jerde, from the View bar atop the San Francisco Marriott Hotel a couple of blocks west of the new Salesforce Tower. “It’s a miasma out there.”
A miasma is what it was. The fog, which rolled in around sunset, obliterated the top third of the new building. It also wrecked the big fireworks show that was scheduled to accompany the debut of the art work known as Day for Night, the 130 foot tall bank of 11,000 LEDs that surround the top of the new 1,070-foot-tall building.
