I have to wonder if it’s just a coincidence, or if it’s something else… as I am visiting friends in the area.

It wasn’t exactly a Bigfoot sighting, but motorists reported seeing someone wearing a gorilla suit in the center divide of Interstate 280 on the Peninsula at the start of Tuesday evening’s rush hour, the California Highway Patrol said.
The first call came in at 4:39 p.m., reporting the costumed primate near the Highway 92 interchange, Officer Marc Johnston said.
“This is a real person in a gorilla suit,” said a CHP log entry on traffic incidents.
One caller reported there were two other people off to the side of the freeway in the same area, Johnston said.
An officer dispatched to the scene at 4:50 p.m. found no one.
“We were unable to locate it,” Johnston said. “They didn’t find anything.”
The mystery continues.John Coté
