What was going on in Ocean Beach 10 years ago? Back in February 2009. We cracked open our archives to see what were the issues, controversies and concerns among OBceans a decade ago.

It turns out almost exactly ten years ago to the day the coast received a huge downpour – it rained an inch in just 4 hours in OB on February 16, 2009. Back then the OB Rag was advocating that people harvest their rainwater.

There were a couple of controversies rocking Newport Avenue back then – the closure of the store Rock Paper Scissors and a dispute between the Farmers Market and a jewelry storeftont.

So, we have tracked down some of the more interesting and provocative posts and share them with you here:

OB is 10X better than 10 years ago (minus the high housing and rental costs)
