The Catch Basin Keeper’s Creed: “This is my catch basin. There are many like it, but this one is mine”Thursday, December 11th, 2014
This is my catch basin. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My adoptive catch basin is doing great – so far so good, during DeathStorm14:
My catch basin is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My catch basin, without me, is useless. Without my catch basin, I am useless. I must clear my catch basin true.
My catch basin is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, and accessories. I will repeated stab at it with a broom handle. I will keep my catch basin clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will…
Before God, I swear this creed. My catch basin and I are the defenders of my City and County. We are the masters of our Enemy, the Pineapple Express. We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until victory is San Francisco’s and there is no Death Storm, but peace!
Here’s Rivera during last week’s Storm of the Month, which, Ocean Beach surfing-wise, was much better than average – hundreds of surfers were on the wet side of the Great Highway on this day:
Well, forget all that:
Seas from the developing system will combine with the distant swell and build to 15-18 feet. Mavericks at Half Moon Bay is likely to see some of the largest waves reaching as high as 27 feet during high tide. Stinson Beach and Ocean Beach could see 11 to 18-foot waves. High tide on Wednesday will be at 2 a.m. and 12:38 a.m., Thursday at 2:40 a.m. and 1:12 p.m., and Friday at 3:19 a.m. and 2:02 p.m.
Floodland: San Francisco Can’t Handle a Little Rain, So It Awakes to Flooded Streets, Buildings and CarsWednesday, December 3rd, 2014
Here’s how the east end of Cayuga looks this AM, near the 101:
And here’s how people are reacting:
“I looked out front and the manhole in the street in front of our house was bubbling water a foot into the air. My neighbors were outside with flooding downstairs as well. I called 311 and was on hold for a while. During that time a fire truck went by and stopped at the other end of the block and stayed their for a while. Other people living down there were out on the sidewalks so I assume the whole street was flooding. Soon after the bubbling stopped. After like 20 minutes of being on hold I got a hold of an operator and reported the situation and she said they’re having flooding issues all across the city, but apparently they don’t coordinate with the fire department so they have no idea what they did.”
“He splashed around and scattered the skilligimink color all over the kitchen, and when his mamma and Susie fished him out, if he wasn’t dyed the most beautiful sky-blue-pink you ever saw!“
