Wet weather drenches Bay Area

Much of the Bay Area experienced more than just some spring showers on Sunday.

Most people walking around San Francisco were prepared, carrying umbrellas and sporting raincoats.

About three of an inch fell in San Francisco and parts of the Great Highway were closed to vehicles today for people to enjoy the Sunday Streets program.

The events ended early because of the wet weather.

The Giants game against the Atlanta Braves at AT&T Park was delayed for several hours, but finally got the go-ahead at around 5 p.m. Some fans were excited the game was able to happen, since today marks the 10th anniversary of the ball park.

Others patiently waited, but decided to leave.

"We were up on the stands, but we decided to leave because we didn't think it would actually stop raining. So we went down to the guitar center, but then we came back when we saw it wasn't raining," Giants fan Nathan Estrada said.

"It was coming down pretty good, we were in our tarps," Giants fan Gavin Smith said. "My shoes got pretty wet and if they play it will be worth it."

The rain was heaviest in the North Bay were it created some problems like a downed powerline in Novato.

There was also some flooding in Highway 1 and Point Reyes and some trees came down, but overall the storm didn't cause too much damage trouble.
