Accidents and Amore

On the way to work today I saw a number of disabled vehicles, but the most notable was a car flipped upside-down about twenty feet off of the road. All day we heard of accidents all over the area - a few in the city, a tractor-trailer on the Bay Bridge, and a number of incidents on the SE corner of the beltway.

What confuses me is that the weather during the day today wasn't that bad. By the time I left for work at noon, some of the city streets were in poor condition, but the highways were essentially clear.

Well... after work today a tanker flipped at the top of 695, blocking me (and anyone coming from N on 83) from heading west or south. Granted, flurries had started up again and it was quite a bit windier than a few hours before, but I have to wonder how these folks did this to themselves. How fast do you have to be going to actually flip a tanker?

Ah well, the wind is now gusty and flurries are in the air, but we're opting to stay in tonight for tv and blankets. Why brave the weather? Why bother? It's so much easier (and cozier) to stay in.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Here's a guess: he was driving recklessly?

I'm staying in today... not because of the weather... but because I am feeling under it. :(
