Sigh,
you really should have checked a map: O'Keefe is just South of the gas station, not West.

Thanks, Bruce. Directional descriptions often get confused in that area because of semantic considerations that you needn't concern yourself with, having to do with the orientation of U.S. 101. For instance, police would say the suspects fled "south" on O'Keefe, though it's almost due east. We altered the story to put it in line with cardinal directions. No hand-wringing necessary.

Wasn't that place held up recently? Like a year ago?

Boring response to Howell, "Who cares?".
