Yesterday morning was normal. Cold, but normal.
Then around midday the winds started. They were 20 to 30 mph with gusts 40 to 50 mph. I could see the trees outside my office blowing and hear all of the debris hitting the building. After a phone call, I was convinced it would be better if I walked rather than rode my bike home.
As I got to Walnut Creek BART, there were people everywhere outside the station. Apparently, broken tree branches had blocked the tracks on the yellow line (Pittsburg/Baypoint <=> Daly City) between Concord and Pleasant Hill and somewhere south of San Francisco. So they were only running trains that were between the two cut-offs. But we had to wait. Then they announced a train was on its way from Lafayette. It arrived but on the opposite platform. I and a few others ran and got on the nearly empty train, and then waited while it waited for everyone else on the opposite platform to come over. At least I got a seat. By the time I made it home it had taken closet to two hours.
Then this morning I had to take Emery-Go-Round back to BART, and that turned out to be a mess because since today is an almost holiday, they started the buses an hour later than usual.
I'll be working through lunch to catch up on my time today.
