Re travel: San Francisco residents can find deals online by going to www.kayak.com. Flights from SFO International Airport can be found online and this author found flights at $1513 leaving SFO on June 3rd. Those fights were with US Airways. Travelers flying anytime soon should check with their airline re flight delays and cancellations due to the volcanic ash cloud.
