4:26 am
on the ground. >>reporter: it is not just sex, brunt can toss your package under hand, they can toss your package over hand and they can toss it like a horseshoe over fences and gates but the delivery men and nemesis from a delivery point of view, then it's hostile don't like it, get rid of the gate. the guy videotaping this ups and deliverymen and compared it to a floating garbage. of course it could be worse. at least they're not ace ventura. >>reporter: of all the special delivery cresol, none was more special than this by fedex. there were sparks coming off the block

4:31 am
hour when everyone is on their computer and their tv. this time it may be only affected late night gamers and the late night television viewers. al here, you can see the pg&e truck ride off to the side. right now pg&e is taking a break diligently trying to repair this. basically they said that one of the connectors burnt out. they are trying to connect that so that they can bring up power and hopefully they will be able to get power back up into the neighborhood by 8:00 a.m.. it is pretty dark out here, let me to show you how dark these couple of streets are. i do not know, it is kind of hard to say how far along the stretch it is. maybe a two to three block radius around here, but you can see down the street. you
4:32 am
can see the light post on. and this image across that one street you are in complete darkness. like i mentioned, there are hoping to restore power by 8:00 p.m..--by eight a m. >>james: which tree is that the power line is down on? >>reporter: acton that crosses right into mission. >>justine: pigs that you call this wednesday we will talk with erica about the weather forecast and what we can expect. >>erica: we will have a dry christmas and a dry next couple of days. we are talking 10 to 20 percent and as i walk you through what is going on in the next 24 hours we see some patchy fog forming in the east bay valleys. as we turn our

4:34 am
>>erica: it looks like we will see 61 for navato, san raphael and 60 for san francisco. we are clear and dry around the bay area that is because we have high pressure over us. we have is not a cloud coverage and that will certainly break down we have the potential for wet weather as we take a look at your seven day around the bay forecast. the first chance for rain is actually on tuesday. in the meantime we are looking at upper 50s and 60s with plenty of sunshine and some pretty frigid morning. in the traffic department, east bound 80 has an accident we are not producing any slowdown to lay its have been blocked there is no estimate of time when the lanes will be open. here in the bay area the approach to the bay bridge toll plaza is looking good. your drive

4:50 am
indicating low 60s were portions of the north bay and down in the south bay as well. i will break down the numbers neighborhood by neighborhood. the conditions are slightly cooler than what we saw yesterday. it looks like we have a mixture of sun and cloud on tap. a lot of locations are hanging out in the upper 50s. in the south bay, it will be right on par with where we were yesterday. as the slide are matched to the north bay, it could be a pretty decent day in santa rosa. here is a quick look at your christmas forecast. this is saturday and sunday we have mostly mild conditions with plenty of sunshine and temperatures that could actually get into the mid '60s. we will be following that for the next couple of days. your extended forecast shows a lot of sunshine in the next several days. like i mentioned, are the '50s--
