My Life as a San Francisco Realtor: California: San Francisco

Huge Storm rolls into the San Francisco Bay Area?

I have to say, I'm a little amused by all the fuss. They're calling it the biggest storm to hit us in maybe 5, 10 years. All schools will be closed in 5 Bay area counties Thursday. 1 to 3 inches of rain in urban areas and maybe 8 inches in the hills. Up to 70 mph wind gusts - one news site called it hurricane force winds?

Huge waves at the beaches, maybe closing Golden Gate Bridge because of wind gusts. Alcatraz tours are cancelled. Urban flooding, downed trees, power outages and flooded highways. 

I guess we'll see how it all plays out Thursday. The worst for SF is expected between 8am and 2pm. I'll be right here!

Meanwhile, I-80 is shut down again tonight (midnight) near Emeryville because of protestors, again!
