The world hasn't ended, but it certainly sucks, especially if you are trying to fly out of SFO today.

The airport is reporting not just delays but massive flight cancellations, and you have the rainy weather to thank for it. NBC reports that more than 60 flights have been canceled -- and the number is still growing.

"Lots of the flights are very full today, so they will continue to operate albeit somewhat delayed," SFO spokesman Doug Yakel said. "I think the day will really show based on how the weather comes in and the severity of the rain will really determine how long the delays are."

The cancellations mostly affect short-haul flights up and down the West Coast, according to Yakel.

If you are headed to SFO now, check with your airline first to make sure you still have somewhere to land.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
