Twitter Turns #BayAreaStorm Into One Big Joke

One of the best uses for social media, specifically Twitter, is breaking news. It works especially well for weather alerts — which is why watching #BayAreaStorm trend all day yesterday was the most entertaining thing a New Yorker could do. There were two kinds of Bay Area folk yesterday: those who were really freaking out about the storm and those who knew their friends on the East Coast were making fun of them.

Watchup’s Adriano Farano, true to form, was capturing great video:

Then, there were logistics to think about:

And of course, the really good advice from the other coast:

#BayAreaStorm warning: you may see small droplets of water falling from the sky. They are dangerous. Do NOT approach.

Hope everyone in NorCal is staying safe in this #BayAreaStorm. And hope everyone on the East Coast is staying safe while making fun of us.

And so it goes. Here’s to staying safe in the flooding, wishing against mudslides, and whatever you do, please protect the wine, because we like it over here:
