After the windiest spring in 20 years at Crissy,

Possibly, but many a day turned out holey, on the inside only, and the City got raked quite good. There haven't been many occasions to reach the North Tower planing that I recall, for me anyways. Looks the wind's been curving through the Golden Gate quite differently this early season, then fog took over.

Hi Gang,

I should have been clearer in my post that started this thread that the increased frequency of eddies west of the Golden Gate has definitely benefited sites north of the Bay Bridge.

This is especially true for the corridor from Treasure Island to Race Track to Pt. Isabel. And to a somewhat lesser degree Sherman Island and Larkspur.

But for the whole coast, the eddy pattern has resulted in less NW wind and much of the Peninsula has also often suffered especially near shore.

Crissy has been especially tough since the eddy makes for strong wind towards the north tower but weak winds towards Anita Rock. And getting the wind to fill into Anita Rock hinges on the vagaries of marine layer cloud clearing. And that is often impossible to forecast.

I often wish for the old days with much less traffic. Back then I could head to 3rd. or Larkspur or Pt. Isabel or Crissy or Waddell at 1 pm with plenty of time for the drive both ways. Here are some ancient photos from those days.
