way. and change the tax code so the rich pay more. >> why are you complaining? who wrote the code? >> you did. you and your campaign -- you and your campaign contributions electing people to represent the wealthy and powerful. >> reporter: warren went after bloomberg on female employees who sued alleging a hostile work environment. >> mr. mayor, are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements so we can hear their side of the story? >> they signed those agreements and we'll live with it. >> reporter: pete buttigieg went after senator amy klobuchar for forgetting the name of mexico's president. >> are you trying to say that i'm dumb or are you mocking me here, pete? >> i'm saying you shouldn't trivialize it. >> you have not been in the arena doing that work. you've memorized a bunch of talking points. >> you don't have to be in washington to matter. >> reporter: they all want to be in washington but getting there is getting tough.

february, lake tahoe looks more like spring and for some drought concerns have already returned. maybe the silver lining is it's an easy drive. resorts have most if not all of their lifts open. it makes it tough for these warm days up there to keep them open and keep that snow cold. >> even as they make snow they're having to keep it cold. and so now we're losing our snowpack, seeing our statewide average of the sierra snow, about 53% of where we should be. if you're going to squaw valley, expect more of the warm weather. we do still have the list of runs open. we are looking good in terms of getting out there and skiing in some of the upper mountain areas. people are maybe hiking instead. over to mike as you're tracking the commute.

5:10 am
>> three people come running around the corner and just came to my car, all three of them are trying to get in. one got in the back seat. one was trying to get in the driver's seat with a gunpointing it at me, and i just kept whacking at the barrel and not letting him. he kept trying to only my door, finally opened it and tried to yank me out. i kept fighting him the whole time. finally i got back into the car because he almost had me out. i realized there was a person still in my car and i told him, get out. >> reporter: now that driver is shaken up but is okay. he got away and fortunately found police at a different unrelated scene where he reported that crime. sfpd captain told us they had another report of another attempted carjacking earlier in the night. a woman said suspects broke the window of her car but she screamed and the suspects ran away. another driver reported another attempted carjacking.
5:11 am

5:44 am
pole and hit an electrical sign before flipping the car along jackson avenue. and six people were being treated in different car crash. this happened when two cars collided 1:30 on northbound 17 south of 85 in los gatos. one of the drivers may have been going the wrong way. another driver says he pulled up to the scene and that's when a motorcyclist hit some debris and crashed. a motorcycle slid through. he had a badly damaged leg which i put a tourniquet on. >> police are looking into why one of the drivers might have been going the wrong way. new details on that deadly fire in the central valley. >> firefighters found the remains of a missing colleague, the second of two firefighters who died. the fire itself happened at the
5:45 am
library about 4:00 p.m. between fresno and bakersfield. that's where porterville is. police arrested two 13-year-old boys accused of starting it. officers say they were seen running from the flames. a firefighter for 13 years with the fire department, jones just started serving three years ago. will the president pardon roger stone? >> scott mcgrew, will stone learn his sentence today? >> it may well include prison time. the president tweeting he thought the sentence prosecutors were recommending, as much as nine years, was too long. the very next day attorney general bill barr reduced the sentence recommendation insisting he did it completely independent of the president's tweet. now stone, a longtime adviser to the trump campaign, the sentence will be up to the federal judge
5:46 am
in the case. trump attacked her, too, on twitter. stone will not go directly to prison. the judge is considering an appeal the trial was unfair. president trump will appoint grenell the next director of national intelligence. he has years of experience in washington and politics. he is going to replace dan coates as dni. coates is also a trump appointee also, for that matter, a former u.s. ambassador to germany. coates very vocal in agreeing with every single other u.s. intelligence agency that the russians interfered in our elections which angered president trump. coates was fired back by tweet in july. this is video of him testifying about the russians. president trump tried to replace him with john ratcliffe but ratcliffe could not get the
5:47 am
senate's approval. we'll be watching that sentencing today. you can follow me at scott mcgrew. ucla is pulling an about-face on plans to role out a controversial racial recognition program for certain restricted areas. the idea sparked student backlash and fears the system would backfire. one group claims ucla is the first to look into the use of technology to monitor students. a small colorado town has a new mayor this morning and many would say he's a really good boboi boy. >> mayor of georgetown, colorado. >> is he wearing glasses? >> very intelligence. it was a packed house when he was sworn in on tuesday. if he maybe looks familiar he's featured on the denver broncos
5:48 am
nationally televised games. he's quite popular. it's actually national love your pet day. all right. well look, today if you love your pet enough, go outside, go to the dog park. it's a good day to do it. >> it's been really nice, feeling springlike. this could go down in one of the driest februarys we've had in quite a long time. san francisco hasn't measured a drop of rain. it is possible we could see this being the driest february since 1864 which was also a leap year and then in 1953 we measur measured .04. we are seeing this low-pressure system and more clouds moving in it will only bring us spotty
5:49 am
showers and a lot of that rain misses us. this is what we're expecting going into saturday and sunday. keep in mind that it will be raining off and on and there will be a few more storm systems going into early next week but it looks like it's still rolling just to our north and so our temperatures will be warming up and for the inland areas we're looking at some low 70s. we're up to 71 degrees today. 73 tomorrow. and then some mid-70s by early next week with san francisco reaching into the mid-60s as we go through the next several days. mike, you're giving us a look at the commute. how is it looking in the south bay? >> things are looking great as far as overall speeds. a little bit of slowing and we expect that. monterey road picking up more volume. my concern is over here as you're making this 680 bend going past jackson avenue. a car went off the roadway.
5:50 am
the lanes are not blocked but flashing lights, tow trucks in the area. looks like chp cleared from the scene. we're looking at a smoother drive for the rest of the bay, the peninsula, picking up a little volume, a little slowing for hayward, south 680. typical patterns in the tri-valley. also out of richmond just the early east shore freeway. the backup got dramatic as the crash was there. six vehicles involved. three had to be towed over. those lanes are cleared. there's actually recovery so good that we can see these fastrak lanes starting to loosen up. it does affect the volume all around the bay. the peninsula with no problems and that construction picked up
5:51 am
