Inferno in San Bruno

I meant to write something for the blog last night, but ended up in front of the TV watching a live video feed showing the fires started by a gas main explosion in a suburb down the road. The horror of the incineration of a neighborhood was unfathomable.

Presumably by the time this entry posts in early morning, this San Francisco Chronicle story will have more details.

"The San Francisco Chronicle will have more details." Dream on. PG&E's infrastructure seems to be falling apart in front of our eyes and the last thing that newspaper will be doing is an in-depth study of the how and why. Neither will the local TV news stations, which I was also glued to last night. Their helicopter shots were amazing, while their commentary was mostly ridiculous and cliche-ridden.

As of Friday afternoon, the Chron is saying it was PG&E's 30 inch gas main -- and 4 are dead.

The story will go on and the litigation and the pain. And we'll dread our failing infrastructure. It reminds me of the evening a few years back when I got an email out of the blue from a Minneapolis friend: "I'm okay -- I was already across the bridge." That's how I learned a major cross-Mississippi bridge had just fallen in...
