"Unscathed"? We're kidding, right?

Several roads are in bad condition from chunks of asphalt missing and asphalted cracks in the roadway worsened or widened. California Street, for one. Various sections of El Camino for another. Intersection of Old Middlefield and Rengstorff coming off the US 101 NB ramp also.

Does no one see the hubcaps lying around from cars slamming in the potholes?

AC, "unscathed" may not be 100% accurate, but we've had no reported deaths, no rescues, no one's house flooded. You're worried about loose hubcaps? Have you seen what's happening in other places? I really appreciate the city's work to get ready for the storm. It's too early to celebrate, though -- We'll see what today brings.
