While I was out "getting tacos" around 2 a.m. last night, the sky lit up with this wild blue and green flash. I'm not talking fireworks either, but an odd, pulsing glow that consumed everything.
At first I thought I must've got some bad meat in my taco, but then the power went out and everyone else around also seemed to notice it. The general consensus was either that Richmond Chevron refinery was up to no good again or aliens were waging war with Fremont, so I went to bed.
Turns out we were all wrong, just some drunk driver nailing a telephone pole near SF General:
crazy evening.after an hour of a drunk girl screaming and pounding on the door, an (unrelated) drunk driver hits the power line...— Jesse Friedman (@beerandnosh) August 25, 2012
… and another house, causing the sky to light up with electricity and the power to turn off for 30 seconds.no one seriously hurt.— Jesse Friedman (@beerandnosh) August 25, 2012
