Official SFGov “Cooling Centers” Announced – Public Pools Free Today, Saturday, Sept 2, 2017 – And Which Libraries Have A/C?

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

Here’s the link from sfdem.org (which of course is the worst URL in the history of the world, ’cause, 1) it’s a .gov website IRL and 2) the dem part makes it seem like it’s from the big “D” Democratic / Democrat party. So, resolved, SFGov should change its internet nomenclature ASAP NBD and our Department of Emergency Management should change its name to generate a less confusing acronym.)

And here’s your heat forecast – 97 degrees today they say. Not as hot as yesterday. Feel free to type in your own zip code, but I’m not sure how much “micro climates” matter today when we’re getting all this heat and smoke from the Great Central Valley with our winds going the wrong direction.

Now, relatively new Sava Pool looks like an Olympic facility IMO…

…and relatively new Ham Rec looks like a water park:

Arrive early, I’d say.

(And Rossi Pool didn’t make this list, IDKY.)

And look, they’re going to kick people out of King Pool at 3:15 PM to give latecomers a chance to squeeze in at 3:30 PM, looks like.

And hey, do Carnegie libraries generally have air conditioning? I think not. But look below, our DEM knows the score.

Also, “Geary Avenue.”

Also, “Lombard Avenue.”

Just saying

All right, here’s your 311 for 09/02:

Isn’t It a Shame that People Have to Wait Until 12 Noon to Get Into Our Main Public Library on Sundays?

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Yes. Yes it is a shame.

Just look at these poor wretches, queuing up for the big library to open.

Shouldn’t this place open at 9:00 AM instead, you know, on Sundays?

I think so.
