What A Day For Delivery

Wow, San Francisco, is this weather the pits or what? The Chronicle reported at about 11:30 a.m. that SFO had 1.34” of rain in the last 24 hours. Ben Lomond had the high with 7.04.” Winds are gusting like crazy, trees are falling everywhere, including one that apparently got onto the BART tracks. A person even got trapped under a Muni bus at West Portal somehow.

Today would be a good day to play sick, if you haven’t already. Golden Gate Transit suspended bus and ferry service today. Traffic stopped on freeways area-wide while gusts of up to 80 mph in some places downed trees and messed up public transportation, especially ferries. From the Chron:

The nasty conditions forced officials to cancel service on the Alameda Bay Harbor Ferry this morning, which runs from Alameda to San Francisco, as well as the Alameda/Oakland Ferry to and from San Francisco. Officials also canceled several runs on the Vallejo Baylink Ferry, and are unsure whether they will be able to resume service for the later runs.

Over on The Snitch, the folks at the SF Weekly have re-published the scariest Caltrans freeway traffic map ever. Remember, the black means traffic is stopped.

You know what this means? That’s right. Delivery. You go home right now (it’ll take you long enough), you pick up those Netflix, you put the kettle on, tape (or board) up the windows and then click here. You know why? This is a list of delivery restaurants, organized by neighborhood in San Francisco. God bless Menupages, eh?
