Storms bringing rain, flooding, high surf warnings to Bay Area

Rain has closed roads and prompted urban flood warnings today, and weather forecasters say it's likely to get worse this weekend before it gets better. The National Weather Service has also issued a hazardous weather advisory for the entire Bay Area and a high surf advisory for areas including San Francisco, the Peninsula and the coastal North Bay.

A bit unnerving to watch the gutter water crest over the sidewalk and begin creeping into the yard. I walked down to the "lake" at the corner
storm drain and reached (way) down into the water, expecting to feel leaves clogging the grate. Nope. Just water and not a lot of flow.
The neighbors are usually good about clearing the grates away during big rains, but this time, there was nothing to do to improve the drainage. Not a big deal, but for the first time, I evaluated where I might place sandbags if I had to(yikes!). Glad it got a chance to drain away before the next wave. Exciting stuff :)
