Also got caught in that mess.
After getting home late after playing a show downtown Saturday night, and then getting home late last night after that marvelous day of shredtastic wonder, I was lucky enough to get the day off for a change due to weather... so tired I couldn't even make it out of bed to go back for more.
Official cause based on the radio we were listening to - big head on collision near twin bridges. Didn't get why all those cars were inexplicably stopped with emergency services at that one point though. Seemed senseless.
It's not that impressive in that sense since it only gains about 2k ft elevation, but the S2S is more about beauty and where it is and where it goes. It's basically carved out of the side of mountains on the edge of the ocean bluffs. Can't deny how incredible it is. Guess that's where the name comes from. Ocean to being surrounded by mountains in a hurry. The road was pretty crazy 10 years ago and in all the pre-Olympics stuff as mentioned here.
I live my life one storm at a time.
