1. Pursuant to my last post about the Great Highway, I would like to note that the lights have all been changed back to normal except for the one at Vicente, which is noticeably asynchronous. If you're southbound, you have to speed up to roughly 45mph from the standard "cruising speed" of 35 in order to catch that green light. Someone somewhere is rubbing his hands together with glee, maybe cackling a little.

2. This morning on my drive to work, I witnessed a pine cone fall from a tree and roll a little ways down the side of the road. I don't know why this struck me as portentous. Maybe because I don't think I've ever seen that particular event occur before.
