From This --- To This

Friday brought a combination of snow and rain along with fog. This is on the gravel road along the north side of the campus. By this time (mid afternoon), the snow had mostly melted.

This was taken on Market Street in San Francisco even though the writing on the streetcar suggests San Diego. I'm not sure what that is all about. It was 70°F this afternoon and not very smoky at all. The Lyft driver said that most of the smoke was in the east bay i.e. Oakland, Berkeley, etc. I walked down to the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero where the Internet2 Tech Exchange is being held from my boutique hotel on Sutter Street. Tomorrow, I'm working with the IPv6 Working Group to capture audio and video of an IPv6 Solutions Tutorial. The plan is to edit the video and put it up on the Internet.

On Sunday evening, a small group of us met in the atrium of the Hyatt to look for dinner somewhere. Very artsy restaurants around here. I'm not sure where we ended up but they had dungeness crab spaghetti. I have never heard of that combination before so I had to try it. A bit spicy with chili peppers and grilled corn in addition to the crab. A tasty combination. There were about eight of us including a couple of guys from Guam who had never been to San Francisco before. So there were a lot of suggestions on where they needed to visit. At dinner, we had guys from Hawaii, North Dakota, and Houston in addition to Guam. An enjoyable evening.

That spaghetti sounded interesting. Enjoy SF, I always enjoyed finding new restaurants to dine at, so many choices for great food.

And 70˚. Can't complain about that.

Didn't San Francisco gather vintage street cars from all over the country and the rest of the world? I thought I once spotted a tram from Switzerland. Enjoy your stay!

Nope, can't complain about 70°F, clear and sunny. All of the cigarette smoke as you walk around is still pretty annoying.

Maybe they did. There are a number of these green, electric street cars but most aren't advertising other locations.
