Check out this crazy Java applet that displays the current wind patterns over the Bay Area. I am usually a weather doubter ("OH it can't be that bad, they just want to scare you!") but today I got the full force of the storm, saw lots of damage and even got lifted a bit while walking home.
It's one thing to drive in bad weather, it's another to have to take public transportation. I gave up and came back home. The last thing I ever want to do is get stranded in Sausalito. link sent by Erika
