They had to shut down three lanes on the Bay Bridge overnight because workers, while working on the last screwy problem that shut it down for many days, discovered yet another screwy problem that required them to shut it down partially.
Have I mentioned that I still haven’t driven over this stupid thing since they re-configured it in September?
I think it’s time for the state to start selling bonds to build a fleet of submarines running from Oakland to San Francisco and back. That’s our only hope. Because once they get the next problem squared away, another will surface. Then another. Then another. Then the whole bridge will simply fall into the bay. Then the new bridge will explode.
By the way, I do have to go to San Francisco on Thursday; to a place I can’t access via BART. Before I leave, I’ll be loading up on anti-anxiety medication, stocking my car with scuba equipment and wearing a hard hat. That still might not be enough to save me.
