Today, 200 tons of snow was dumped onto Fillmore Street here in San Franciso in order to make a ski jump. Thousands of people attended the event. Why wasn’t I there? Why didn’t anyone tell me about this? It seems like I always find out about cool things like this just after they happen.
Anyway, there is an article (and gallery) over at SFGate.com that gives all the details. There is a very interesting quote from San Francisco police Capt. Kevin Dillon:
“At this point our biggest concern is getting medical attention to the people who are suffering from the heat.”
Umm… it was in the high 70’s today. I think this statement proves my point… San Franciscans are wimps!
