So how is your home/ work holding up with all of our (welcomed!) recent rains? We have specific areas in town that flood and Airport Blvd is one of them. City crews were seen cleaning out the storm drains last week in this area near Sister Cities – even still this is what Tracy Stevenson sent to us today. ‘Drive safely in the Sister Cites/Airport Blvd area. The rain sure did leave its mark’ Tracy tells us – Good advice to heed, thanks Tracy.

Meanwhile in San Francisco a 10 foot sink hole opened up earlier this morning at Lake and 6th in the Richmond District. A 6 inch water main may have been the cause however it may have ruptured after the sinkhole fell. In addition a second sinkhole opened in the Castro District on Danvers Street, which was much smaller.
