San Francisco This Morning is Both Rainy and Foggy – An Unusual Combination

Friday, February 5th, 2010

One of the nice things about San Francisco is that when it’s foggy it’s generally not rainy and vice versa.

Flooded Streets Don’t Slow Down San Francisco’s Street Sweeping Service

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

When the signs say that they’re going to ticket cars and run the street sweepers on Tuesday morning betwixt 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM, you can bet that they’re going to ticket cars and run the street sweepers on Tuesday morning just after 8:00 AM. Flooded streets cannot alter this. It Is Written.

So this is how City employees will spend their time today, whether you like it or not!

“Beeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr….”

The Sidewalks of San Francisco have been Engulfed by Recent Rains

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Our recent rains appear to be too much for the sewers of San Francisco - it’s not easy navigating sidewalks when they’re underwater of course. But cheer up, we’ll probably be back to the drought in no time.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission would like to take this time to remind us all: Only Rain Down the Drain.
