If you were driving home to San Mateo/Foster City at around 5pm and saw a LOT of smoke and wondered if your house was on fire. Here's why:
"A grass fire near a Pacific Gas and Electric Co. substation in San Mateo has not damaged any PG&E equipment, but more than 6,000 residents are without power, a PG&E spokesman said today... (skipping to the good part)...golf course lost power...and she could see plumes of black smoke coming from the area of the fire. The pro shop and restaurant are closed due to the power outage, but golfers are still out on the course. " (more)
I was kinda shitting my pants as I drove closer and closer to the smoke, seriously wondering if my place was on fire. If I were out playing golf when the explosion went off and grey smoke filled the air, gee I dunno, I wouldn't shrug my shoulders and tee up my next shot. It's been 2.5 hours and the air seems to finally be clearing up. Yuck did it ever stink.
