Two of the ramps in the maze on the Oakland side of the Bay Bridge are down. And somehow no one died. Very lucky timing – fairly early today, Sunday. And the driver walked away – the driver of the tanker that rolled over and exploded. Incredible. (That sounds like he’s unhurt – he’s not. I heard second degree burns. Still incredible.)
Luckily for me, a very localized disaster I don’t have to work on.
Yes, of course I drove by later today. But I planned to see my grandmother in Marin, so I was rubbernecking legitimately. Strange sight to see a section of freeway hanging sideways. *Shudder*
And I bought some yarn on the way home. You see, I had to avoid the really horrible traffic, so I had to drive surface roads, and of course the only possible way (wink wink) is past Article Pract on Telegraph. I fell into the new stock of solid color Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock. And a skein of Rio de la Plata superwash merino sock yarn (100 g) came home with me to try, and Nature’s Palette fingering weight from Hand Jive too. Woops!
