Heavy rains in SF lead to flooding at Silver Sprocket

Yesterday was not only New Year’s Eve, it was also the second wettest day in San Francisco’s history. Due to the heavy rain, there was a lot of flooding, including at Silver Sprocket Comics, where the basement got soaked with water, which stinks because that’s where they keep their inventory.

They put out an open call for folks to come and help move inventory from the basement to the main room, and a couple dozen folks showed up to help. I even spotted Leef, the owner of Mission Comics, which is a few blocks down the street, lending a hand. I was only there for a few hours, but in that time we managed to get about 3/4 of the inventory moved up to a nice, dry location on the main floor. which is good because more rain is on the way soon. Silver Sprocket is a great shop run by great people and now is as good a time as any to pick up some comics from their shop in SF or SilverSprocket.net
