    anyone seen the data from this one? About 33 steady at RYC right now, gust to 51...Angel Island about 54 steady, with gust to 73...In the north bay, the rain has been coming down hard all day, do you think it will flood like a few years ago?? This is pretty wild, I hope nobody is out sailing...

    Whoa, that's windy, even for SF Bay standards.

    My husband just checked Crissy Field with iwindsurf.com. It's west 21 gusting to 28. Angel Island south at 58, gusting to 84.

    Crissy Field is actually in a pretty sheltered location for this storm.

    I remember those kinds of storms from growing up on SF Bay. I loved them!

    There's probably some fool out kiteboarding or windsurfing right now...

    ...apparently the entire Richmond-San Rafael bridge is closed because the high winds caused several accidents...101 South is closed at the 580 intersection because the new overpass being built there is falling apart somewhat, and wood has been falling on cars...101 North is open, but it's backed up from central San Rafael to the Golden Gate Bridge...yuck
