Electric Car Explosion at Warming Hut
I read some very bizarre news this weekend- basically that, last Friday, an electric
GM ca GEM car (thanks DDP), despite being unplugged, exploded next to the Warming Hut causing a fire that will close it for a month or so. Sad, and odd. Warming hut is in the Golden Gate National Rec Area – (Not to be confused with GGNRA). It’s a cafe and bookstore/toystore at the end of Crissy Field near the bridge, at Torpedo Wharf, you know, Torpedo Wharf (note: I have seen this only on one map and a historical interpretation and nobody has ever said it to me!).
It has a great menu for kids, and very good soy lattes. They grill your sandwich nice and hot, and you can sit on the pier and eat it and watch people illegally fish. As you can see, my routine will be seriously impacted now that it’s closed. Nice article on the sustainability measures taken into account when creating the Warming Hut.
