So... BART's shutdown.
Apparently it has something to do with a computer system problem. At this point, I'm kind of wishing I had taken a picture fo the station. The metal gates were almost closed, and people (including me) would walk up to them in confusion, getting slower and slower, then read the signs and walk away with a puzzled look on their face.
The wind was absolutely insane last night. The gusts were so powerful that up on the top floor it felt like a series of magnitude 4 earthquakes. thew cover was halfway blown off of my grill, and the empty, spare propane tank had been rolled around the patio.
On the way to BART this morning there were lots of empty garbage cans on their sides as well as broken branches. I saw one tree that was at least a foot and a half in diameter that had been snapped off just above the ground. Luckily it fell towards the street and not the house it was in front of.
But, at least the predicted 30+ mph winds weren't blowing on my way to (and much slower return from) BART.
