The Perfect Storm

San Francisco sky is usually gray. It's easy to be a San Francisco weatherman. Just predict partly cloudy every day. Today, however, three gaps in the clouds collided to form one big blue anti-cloud. The perfect storm...of light.

Castro Plaza an urban "mini-park" at Castro and Market is traffic-free. Potted plants prevent cars from turning into it. Citizens and tourists alike board antique street cars (of the "Presidential") model, painted different colors based on the city of their origin. They make a screeching noise as the round the corner that resembles the trumpeting of an elephant.
