The big winter storm that blew through San Francisco on Sunday generally spared Bernal Heights from too much biblical-grade havoc, but it did get the best of our trees (and a few parked cars). Luckily, no one was injured.
The leafy mayhem kicked off on the Richland Avenue, where Neighbor Audra shared this photo of a big limb that fell across the Bernal Cut bridge, cutting off access to our ancestral kin in Bernal-Glen:
DPW quickly cleared the branch from the Richland bridge (thank you!), but that was not the end of our arboreal mayhem.
Neighbor Darcy shared this photo of a tree eating a Nissan on the 100 block of Bradford, near Powhattan:
On Wool Street, Neighbor Bernard reports that a tree had it out for this Audi:
The Revenge of the Trees continued in Precita Park, where Neighbor Maria captured another tree munching on the hood of a Mazda, as a neighbor raised her fist in solidarity with the fallen foliage:
But the biggest drama unfolded on the south side of Bernal Hill, where a very big tree fell across Bernal Heights Boulevard, rendering our scenic artery impassable. Neighbor Markus shared a dramatic photo of the fallen tree’s root structure:
Meanwhile, on the western side of the roadblock, Neighbor James captured a neighbor pausing for a stylish moment of chaos chic. Never mind the Golden Globes; What’s the it-look for Bernal Heights storm-chasing in 2017? Why, it’s slip-on sneakers, cranberry tights, and a slim-fitting winter coat in navy — obviously!
