Good afternoon!

First off thank you to all who donated – we more than met our goal. And all the donations go directly toward reporting. I will give a full accounting in another week or so as we are still getting in back-dated checks.

Now onto the rain. Follow our live updates here.

On Tuesday we were out checking in on the Folsom and 17th zone, which has been a flood zone for years. Why wasn’t more done before the New Year’s eve storm? Mayor Breed said she just didn’t realize it was going to pour.

In advance of today, the city was out talking to homeless residents, trying to move more into emergency shelter space.

Is it a legitimate business plan to profit from public space? Let us know what you think.

In the meantime, stay dry,
