San Francisco High Wind Warning

Yesterday was windy, but I heard on the radio today that the weather people had taken the extra step of issuing a high wind warning for the San Francisco Bay area. Driving past Candlestick this afternoon the wind was definitely on. The water was solid whitecaps everywhere, but nobody was out sailing. Hoping to maybe catch a few sailors or kitesurfers taking advantage of the wind, I headed over to Ocean Beach. Coincidentally this route helped me avoid the huge traffic backup caused by a head-on collision on the Golden Gate Bridge. Six cars were involved and created traffic problems for over 3 hours. As I drove down Great Highway, sand was drifting across the road. I pulled into the parking lot just south of the Cliff House and saw three sailors out windsurfing. The wind is supposed to stick around through tomorrow. Get out there and enjoy it!
