Did you notice the lack of flashing red lights?? Did you notice the Berkeley and Walnut Creek police cars and incident command vans?? Did you notice the large number of personal vehicles and people just standing around in groups listening to a presentation?
Did it cross your mind that it might be a training exercise like the 2 they did last month and the month before for other departments.. it did me.

You don't have many friends or hobbies do you. That's sad. Maybe if you knew how to interact with people you would be a happier man.
You were the guy that grew up being picked on and made fun of weren’t you. Now you have a computer to hide behind and feel like you can take it out on people that did nothing to you. Sad little world you live in!

unclehomerr, ome M two R's, There was no need to be condescending to Tim. All that was necessary was for you to explain there was a training exercise going on and not try to belittle Tim and let it go at that.

If this were a real event, rescue operations would have called in support from neighboring communities and you would have seen Berkeley and Walnut Creek as well as other police and fire units. Without a sign, either you are guessing from a distance, or getting closer to "check it out" potentially interfering with a real disaster response.

Tim, I'm glad you asked. We saw the same thing on our way to Costco and couldn't figure it out. Since we don't go that direction except maybe once every couple of months. How did we know what was happening. It looked like something big that was almost over with. Thanks for finding out for me what was going on.
