6:17 pm
orderly fashion. >> reporter: as usual, there's a little more at play here. blue gogo's cut rate price of $2 an hour is a lot cheaper than the standard rate charged by motivate, the private bike company that has a 10-year exclusive deal with the city. >> they are welcome as the city said to come in talk to the city about their plans and we'll negotiate with them. >> reporter: but you said we have an exclusive deal. it precents them from coming in. >> those contracts can be changed. >> reporter: until then. >> we'll confiscate those bikes. impound those bikes. we'll sell those bikes. >> reporter: and i'm going to tell you that blue gogo we talked to them as well and they say they are still planning to go lead with bringing bikes, not tens of thousands but they plan to start and start very soon. in san francisco, phil matier, kpix 5. back to storm watch it was pouring rain at golden gate park in san francisco. not a lot of people were at the lake this afternoon. the pattle boats were locked up by the boathouse. kiet do is in the santa cruz

[ laughter ] >> reporter: and mudslides. >> yeah. >> reporter: the heroes of the storms continue to be the crews who have been doing the dirty work round the clock trying to stay ahead of the storm. this crew was trying to unclog its drain before the mud runs off and causes more problems downhills. is it working? >> no. >> reporter: so what happens if it clogs. >> it makes a bigger mess. >> reporter: and we are hearing

6:22 pm
overnight, we'll see some scattered showers certainly mostly cloudy for your morning commute on thursday. thursday evening a few showers mostly cloudy a little drier than today. and then friday, boom, look at this. this is storm 2. that's going to be moving in for your commute in the morning. the overall story evening rain gusty winds showers likely on thursday. and then storm number 2 like i said will be arriving on friday. so everything will start to dry out tomorrow for a quick break then back again on friday. a little wet on saturday. and then things will start to finally dry out after the third round of storms on tuesday and wednesday but we pretty much keep the galoshes and umbrella out. it's going to be soggy for the next few days. thank you. a decades long battle to live on the water. now the big victory for a unique floating community in the bay area. >> if you had to vote for the baseball hall of fame? would you give it to barry

6:38 pm
>> reporter: but in 1996, to approve this unusual arrangement, state regulators had a laundry list of demands requiring floating lanes to create bike lanes, build wheelchair ramps and open the entire doctor public access. each boat had to be connected to power and sewer lines and even made them plant a tidal marsh along the muddy shore. >> 20 years ago was not so easy. but you know, we have proven ourselves. we have done everything they have asked of us. >> reporter: that's remarkable because these are not wealthy people. in fact, only artists and maritime workers are allowed by the city to live here and 85% of them qualify as low income. so most of this was accomplished with nothing but sweat equity. >> we do it. >> think outside the box. find a different way to get it done. >> we do it. >> and get it done. >> right on, poor people!
