Anyone out at Alameda today?

Looks like there is some wind but looking outside my window it looks pretty ugly. Watch out for lighting and squalls. Almost looks like tornado weather.

Yeah, no go anywhere today, it's been pretty nasty out there. Now there's thunder and lightning too, I'm not going out there!

San Quentin village to me is very intimidating, it is not a place to screw up, you can end up underneath the approuch to the bridge pillings.
