Stormy weather in San Francisco

The San Francisco bay area had quite a storm yesterday. Gusts of 70MPH were clocked on the Golden Gate bridge, and the San Rafael bridge was closed. I live on a hill near Lone Mountain and the wind gusts were very strong. There were times that the building shook. One wind gust blew my patio furniture against the far railing of the deck.

It's lightweight plastic .. but still.

With no power for seven hours, I finally got bored (not to mention I wanted a hot meal) and went walking towards the panhandle and the Lower Haight. The power outages were in pockets, some blocks had power, some didn't. The trees in the neighborhood got a serious pruning. There were branches all over the sidewalks and one downed tree. Should have brought my camera.

Check out this picture of the San Rafael/Richmond bridge from sfgate.com.
