The Chronicle is reporting:

Officials have suspended ferry service to and from the Alameda Main Street Pier terminal as a safety precaution so inspectors can check potential problems with the pier pilings.

Perhaps it would be an understatement to say that we’ve all been feeling a little chilly lately, what with the temperatures dipping to multi-year lows (night time temperatures dropping to below freezing in Alameda, huh?). The last time this happened was over 30 years ago. Whilst it certainly has been cold, it has also been relatively dry!

It’s this kid‘s fault!
