After a very wet Saturday, the San Francisco bay on Sunday was a delight! The bay had the America's Cup, twin hulled ferry, fantastic sailing vessels and the brand new eastern span of the Bay Bridge for everyone to feast their eyes! Enjoy!!

So, what should have been a 10 minute drive to Berkeley to drop my car off at the mechanics just ended up being a 45 minute debacle!! I somehow missed my exit and was headed towards the Bay Bridge, thank goodness there is a "last exit before bridge". I somehow miss the exit and and SOMEHOW get in the car pool lane that only is fast track and there was no turning back. So I'm on the bridge, that my maps haven't updated since the new bay bridge and it shows be just driving on water. I get off at Treasure Island and fumble my way back to bridge. Now I'm headed with the traffic leaving the city! I made it. Looking on the positive side of all things: I'm blessed to have a car that can get lost with me. Blessed to have a job to pay for my carpool lane ticket. And blessed to get a long view of the new and beautiful bay bridge while I was in traffic :). Is it Friday yet :-/

Hanging out at the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. Perfect weather.
Its been comical and at the same time tragic watching the local news cast as they try to spin this BART strike create this air of apocalyptic panic. First they been trying to show how there are massive record breaking traffic jams..That has not happened..What we been seeing is pretty much normal rush hour traffic... It might be a few more cars than usual and maybe folks are off by 5-10 minutes in their commute, but them showing folks sitting in their cars to get to the Bay Bridge during commute hours where its always a 30-40 minute wait from downtown is not out of the ordinary..One would not know that listening to some of the anchors introduce each traffic report with words like 'chaos', 'maddening' 'seething' etc... In fact they showed a poll on one of the news outlets and over 60% said the strike wasn't impacting them.. Maybe 20% said it was.. Next they been trying to get folks who are frustrated about the strike and having to find alternatives routes or having to get up early, to bash on unions and t . ...
My grandmother told me last night that, BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) employees, are on strike and the entire Bay Area is going crazy with hectic traffic. Now people are forced to drive, that is if they have a vehicle to do so. People travel back and forth from the city (San Francisco) to Oakland, and other areas of the Bay everyday to get to work, and now unable to get to work because of no train options. BART is losing $75mm A DAY!!! I can only imagine how crazy the toll-area of the Bay Bridge looks like everyday. BART is the train system that covers a real massive area of the Bay, and they are trying to organize more buses from other transportation systems to get riders to wherever they are trying to go. For years Atlanta was known as having the worst traffic in America, and these are one of the many reasons why I choose to stay within a comfortable distance to downtown. If anything was to happen to my vehicle, MARTA, GRTA, Cobb, Gwinnett or etc. I can ALWAYS easily find a way to get to where I am tryi ...

What happens when the train goes on strike in the Bay Area? Gridlock.over 400,000 trying to cross the Bay Bridge, over 1 hr to cross into San Francisco
Traffic on the Bay Bridge is noticeably heavier this morning as the BART strike continues into its second day. Also, contract talks appear to be going nowhere fast -- with both sides waiting for the other to make the first move. BART unions, management at odds over contract By Monday evening, it appeared that the strike would continue into Tuesday. No further bargaining sessions have occurred since representatives from Service Employees International Union Local 1221 and Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555 left the table on Sunday and none are currently scheduled. BART's unions are asking for a 4.5 percent raise every year for three years, along with stricter safety standards for workers and passengers. BART says it's offering workers a 2 percent pay raise every year over the next four years, along with a reduction in the expected increase in health care costs. The unions say BART's latest proposed increase is based on unrealistic projections and actually amounts to $1 a year. While the unions rallied Mo ...
Hey fellow Marylanders... The tax on gas goes up tomorrow and the toll to cross the Bay Bridge goes up to $6. Are we getting our money's worth? How happy are we?
How many cars could a BART Strike put on the Bay Bridge during the morning commute? BART records around 400,000 trips on a typical weekday. A trip starts when you run your card through the machine on entry and the trip ends when you exit the system. If you take BART to get back home that's a second trip. Since most of the folks who take BART to somewhere usually take BART home, 400,000 trips means about 200,000 people use BART to get somewhere during the day. Not all of those folks go from the East Bay to San Francisco and less than half travel during the peak commute. The actual number of people BART carries across the Bay into San Francisco during a weekday morning commute is about 50,000. Some mornings might see higher but 60,000 or more is rare. That's a lot of people looking to join the 9-10,000 vehicles per hour the metering lights allow across the bridge, but it's not 90-100,000 and it's certainly not the 400,000 I keep hearing on the nightly news. My thought it this: If a reporter is too ...

ANNUAL PICNIC Saturday July 26, 2013 at 11 a.m. to closing Crown Memorial State Beach City of Alameda Here's a description from our president, Kathy Paddock: The picnic this year will be held at a NEW BUT FAMILIAR LOCATION in Alameda at the Crown Memorial State Beach, City View Picnic Site. We have been there several times so you may remember the location. The showpiece of the park is its 2.5-mile beach, with sand dunes bordering a bicycle trail. The beach is a great achievement of landscaping and engineering. The sandy beach is shallow for a long way out and is very nice for children to wade or swim in. The view of the city and the Bay Bridge is wonderful. We are the last site at the end of the parking lot with easy to access to unload your picnic things and then park. There is a small parking fee when you enter the park. Trees surrounding the picnic site make it feel very cozy to make camp for us Indians. Our Tlingit and Haida Council will supply the hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, condiments, charcoa ...

Even with broken bolts the new bridge is safer than the old one is right now. How does that make you feel, Bay Area?

Good start in San Fran... Bay Cruise... Saw the Golden Gate, Bay Bridge, and Alcatraz!
We are hanging and jamming by the Eastern Shore tomorrow night in Saint Michaels at Blackthorn Irish Pub. Then we cross the Bay Bridge and head to naptown on Saturday night at Mangia Italian Grill & Sports Cafe. Hope to see you out, relaxing, drinking, and dancing!
Night Bicycle ride in San Francisco. Leave the compound after dark, close to 10pm. Roll down Sweeny towards San Bruno Avenue. No rain but heavy fog. I will be wet the whole ride. It will also be dark, with little traffic on the streets. Cut under the highway at Bayshore, and pick up Portrero. Pass 21st Street, where I first caught the bus to work after moving to SF. Onward to 16th, taking a left by the Safeway Plaza. Right on Bryant, down under the highway, cut over to Folsom, and cross the Street numbers on to 8th Street. Stop for a beer, a song, and onward. 7th Street up to Market, passing the sight of the old Greyhound Station. Mostly sticking to the overly large downtown sidewalks, continue down Market Street past the cable car turnaround at Powell. The skyscrapers reach up all around. Construction digs below putting in the new subway tube. Crossing the wide Embarcadero at Market's end, taking a left at the Ferry Building. Roll out over the Bay on the enchanting Pier 7, paralleling the Bay Bridge str ...
A history of the Mid-Bay Bridge written on its 10th anniversary by Daily News reporter Tom McLaughlin: Northwest Florida Daily News 22 JUN 2003 A1 'Bridge to Nowhere' no more By TOM McLAUGHLIN Daily News Staff Writer For years, men of vision gazed across Choctaw-hatchee Bay and dreamed of finding a way to link the communities that had grown up on its northern and southern shores. One of the first dreamers, an Okaloosa County commissioner named Walter S. Spence, passed on his version to his son, well before World War II. "He and his brother. The two of them were promoting building a bridge when I was a kid," said 77-year-old Walter F. Spence. The dream of the father became the dream of the son, and Walter F. "Francis" Spence made the dream a reality. He is universally credited as a driving force behind the construction of the Mid-Bay Bridge. The Mid-Bay Bridge, a 3.6-mile span that connects Destin and the area of Niceville, Bluewater Bay and Valparaiso, turns 10 years old Thursday. But Spence and others be ...
Finally back on Eastern Shore after nightmare flight from *** Never been so happy to see Bay Bridge!:)
PLANNED CLOSURES THIS WEEK -- The westbound Bay Bridge is scheduled to close tonight (Sunday) from midnight to 5 a.m. tomorrow for maintenance work. Two-way traffic will operate on the eastbound span during the full westbound span closure. One lane of the westbound span may also close Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for additional work. The Fort McHenry Tunnel (I-95) is tentatively scheduled for periodic lane closures Monday through Thursday this week, also for maintenance. The schedule is subject to change due to weather, traffic and any incidents.
Thanks to Tim and Nancy Thorpe for a great boat ride in the Chesapeake Bay to the Bay Bridge, up the Severn River by the U.S. Naval Academy and docking for dinner.
Interesting scam Subject: Delta Tunnel speaker June 30 This sounds interesting!! Pass on please:) Laurie From: Karl Sent: Saturday, June 22, 2013 Subject: Tunnel speaker June 30 From Gene: Karl, I've arranged for a well known investigative reporter, Richard Trainor, to speak on the corruption behind the bullet train, S.F. Bay Bridge, and other California public works projects, INCLUDING THE FORTHCOMING TWIN TUNNELS boondoggle, at Tower Park Marina's Rosa's Restaurant, Sunday, June 30th, at 4:30 p.m. There will be a no host bar available. Attached is the press release on the speech. There will be an open Question and Answer period following the talk. Richard has a proposal on how to stop the tunnels and I think it is worth all our time to listen to him. He claims the present environmental law suits that are just now starting to be filed will not be the answer. He has taught me more about investigative journalism than I've learned in an entire career. He has the facts on how mega-rich puppeteers behind t .. ...
Wishing my sister a speedy swim today from the Golden Gate Bridge to Bay Bridge. My the current be with you!
If the eastern span ever opens, i will never drive across it! Bay Bridge troubles began with design Jaxon Van Derbeken Published: Jun 22, 2013, 6:55 PM Photo 1 of 3 The team designing the new Bay Bridge eastern span had a problem. Pressure was building to move forward on what would become the most expensive public works project in California history, but Caltrans' in-house steel experts reviewing plans for the new bridge had spotted what they believed was a major flaw. Among the more than 1,000 pages, they pointed to a single sheet that called for the use of a particular type of high-strength steel bolt coated in molten zinc, a process known as galvanization. Such bolts, the experts warned, were prone to cracking in a moist marine environment such as San Francisco Bay and shouldn't be used. It turned out that the bridge design called for thousands of other bolts and rods made of that same kind of steel - fasteners strong enough to enable the unconventional span to resist the everyday vibrations created by ...
Newly released Caltrans documents reveal there were quality-control problems with hundreds of the steel rods and bolts installed on the new Bay Bridge eastern span, including one batch that was improperly treated with brake cleaner and another with an aerosol product called Zinc-It.

I crossed the Bay Bridge into San Francisco for the first time in 1979 (after moving here, from Ontario, Canada). The skyline was a bit different back then, dominated by the Transamerica Pyramid. Upon exiting the Treasure Island tunnel and climbing the incline, I exclaimed (rather loudly- I was alone): “OZ!!!” I had never before heard that expression used in reference to SF; I just felt it. And I have been feeling it ever since. I love ”The City”- and the entire Bay Area.
I am praying for Richard to get a job managing the light rail project. Richard has light rail experience, freeway construction experience. He knows how the Bay Bridge could have been built the right way. Sadly, the politicians know nothing about civil engineering and they are the ones that decide who the contractors will be and what design plans they will adhere to. I told Richard he could retire. He has put in 25 years at CALTRANS. He could start a new chapter with the State of Hawaii. Oh, well! This is just a *** omaka'ika'i 2013.
A few weeks ago, I headed over the Bay Bridge and over towards Easton, Maryland to meet Morgan and Josh, a newly engagement couple whose wedding I'll be photographing
Lynn Swann would never be a Patriot. I should have seen the writing on the wall, when Ronnie became a Jet, Ken Norton, Jr. was no longer the enemy and became one of us and when Primetime both captured and then broke our hearts. Gone are the days where you could count on Magic and Worthy vs Bird and McHale vs Isaiah and Dumars vs Michael and Scottie, every year in May. Mind you I understand teams aren’t static, I sadly accepted Coach Walsh trading away Joe. I understood the decision to let Roger high step his way over the Bay Bridge. I saw the necessity for turnaround as a step to rebuilding (especially the 20 year rebuild on the Warrior bench), though I may never have agreed with it -- Bonds needed to go, but Bill Mueller? Matt Williams? Will Clark? Even under duress, I agree with the contract laborer foundations to the arguments leading to free agency. I understand the significance of Curtis Flood. The demand market determines the players’ price tag. Instead of playing for beans or wallowing in a poo ...

Does anyone remember the former mayor of San Francisco Willie Brown? Nicknamed Slick Willie for his corrupt ways? Well somebody in Sac just proposed naming the western half of the new Bay Bridge after him. I wonder if that's the half that had all those problems with inferior corrupt bolts made in China.
From the cottage bookshelf, novel plucks for a Friday: Ghost Town, Dogtown, Jingletown, there were large swaths of Oakland all but unknown to Julie, among them that ragged old ill-used selvage between the bay and the tangles of the 880 and 980: abandoned army bases and naval stations, depopulated blocks where everything seemed to have been flattened by some economic meteor impact, tattered wetlands ribboned with egret. And, of course, the string of loading cranes massed along the westernmost edge of town, the 1st Oakland Cavalry readying a charge on San Francisco, shipping containers stacked around their feet, like bales of hay by giant quartermasters, to fuel the final assault. The container boxes of the port of Oakland, as seen from the Bay Bridge, were a lifelong sources of fascination to Julie, monster piles of colored brick like stabs at some ambitious Lego project left unfinished, interchangeable as casino chips and yet each filled potentially with something new and surprising, soccer balls, polyur ...

There are so many stories from San Francisco State University. I just got an email from an old friend. So inspired now. Thoughts of Hawaii with Mike and Oscar. Walking down the street with Mike in Mazatlan. Parties at the TKE house in Berkeley. Road trips to Peter's in San Clemente, TKE parties in Sacramento, all those cops that pulled over our convoy before we hit Dixon. I am wondering if it was all worth it, but I can't do that. My wife asks that question of me all the time and here still I stand. Vikki, Stacey, Kristy, the wonders about what happened after that road trip to Yosemite, how the girls changed that car accident with the Alpha Phis on the Bay Bridge returning from Berkeley. The romantic relationships, tensions, when did we ever study? How could I study when I share a dorm room on an all girls floor with Rob? He was juggling two girls named Donna back to back. My own bedroom door was locked. Rob met Donna after Tony brought her to the semester's first Sig Ep Party. I tripped over Charles on m ...
