Gaia Strikes Back! Subaru Clobbered by Giant Tree Branch in Golden Gate Park

The City crew failed to leave a note, but I think the driver will figure things out for herself after seeing the flat tires and all the sawdust.

Just another foggy day in Paradise…

    It’s true, the trees *are* out to get us. Have you heard about the triathletes that got treed in Sonoma County?
