North Oakland Now: Tuesday, Feb. 17 2009
on February 17, 2009
Another day of showers around the Bay Area messed with people’s plans, including delays at SFO and Oakland Airport, power outages and flooding – but it still won’t be enough to end the water shortage. In a really heinous move, someone burgled a local food giveaway over the weekend. Hopefully we’ll start to see some positive changes with the $787 Billion stimulus plan signed into law today by President Obama, but the California Senate is still one vote shy of a finalized state budget.
