It was an eerie day in Palo Alto but wonderfully, everything went smoothly as I navigated to another city for some coffee. So many people behaved with grace and goodwill and we all made it safely. I did notice that, although most drivers treated non working streetlights as Stop signs, there were a number of drivers who took them as a ticket to sail on through with out a stop. I wonder if these are the same drivers who don't pull over and stop when an emergency vehicle comes up behind them.
