freeway news -

There was a 31 vehicle pile-up early this morning on 101 by Sausalito. Two people were killed and the highway was shut down in both directions. The northbound lanes will be closed all day to allow a complete investigation. The southbound lanes were only partially re-opened at 7:30 this morning. It is hard to imagine what the traffic will be, and how this would have affected a work day. Again, I feel the fragility of our circumstances. We make plans, and assume we can get somewhere. We don't consider an excuse. And, yet, this year, weather has been a big part of our lives. Some long-term businesses closed for good in San Anselmo. They couldn't handle another flood. Flooding has affected the freeway off-ramp where I live, again and again. This accident this morning seems to be due to drinking but the involvement of so many cars was due to slushiness and ice.

I continue to read of how everything we need is here right now. There is nowhere to go. How appropriate for this day, where my parameters of distance will be defined by walking, and that feels okay to me.

I also consider the person who will be charged with felony drunk driving. How very sad this is for absolutely everyone involved.
