Seems that BART went out of service tonight. I was walking towards the Transbay Termnial when I saw a long line going all the way out of it. You can tell that they needed tickets or something of that sort. Thank God I didn’t forget my pass today or I would’ve totally been there all night.
It’s weird though… I guess they all didn’t have any change to pay the fare—in the bus. It just goes to show that everyone don’t carry cash anymore. Anyways, BART is all about safety. Though it caused a lot of people some grief and delays on their way home, we just gotta be glad that there are other ways out to the East Bay.
(03–29) 18:55 PST SAN FRANCISCO — BART service is resuming after a nearly 90-minute shutdown caused by a computer networking problem.
BART stopped regular service after the problem hit at 5:27 p.m., moving all trains under manual control to the nearest station. System officials said trains had resumed about 6:50 p.m.
BART spokesman Linton Johnson said the problem was different from the software glitch that plagued the system Tuesday, but had the same effect — a service shutdown.
Since the day he was born about a quarter plus years ago in SF, Justin has never used the BART. Today, was a glorious rainy day—as he finally experienced his first BART ride. Even though it was a short one (from Montgomery Street to Powell street), it was well worth the $1.40 in change spent.
Please do know that this was a joke. Come on, its like not going to Disneyland for free and living a mile away from it.
So I have been busy these past couple of days. I don’t even think I got out that much during the weekend, other than to play softball on Saturday noon. Besides that, it was pretty much spending daylight in my room and being deviant with some projects both for work and for freelance. Anyways, I just want to share something with you all… I lost something special to me. Something that has kept me dry at times, as well as kept me safe when I have to walk late at night—my umbrella, Timba.
I got her during Timberland’s 40%-off Friend & Family Sale this past year. She was great. She did her job well. It was just unfortunate to have lost her due to strong 18mph winds blowing south-southwest early tonight.
Anyways, I just had to do an “obituary” persay and share it with the great people over at Timberland. Here’s my solemn note:
To whom it may concern,
“This umbrella features a classic, vented arc design that can hold its own (and hold its shape) even in strong winds.”
I really love the compactness and built, but the winds tonight over at SF tested its build,
I got the umbrella through your Fall Friends and Family sale. I was wondering when you guys are gonna have another one so I can get a hold of a new one. This sucks. Please help. I look forward to your reply.
