a wednesday. in summer it was kind of a rough one. in fall, 31 minutes is actually a very good commute though there is waiting to do in richmond and el cerrito. when you get to the macarthur maze, when you see traffic ease out. if you are going to be bat bridge, you'll be waiting an additional 20 minutes to get on the span. i feel as if i need to let you know that this commute usually is better. we had an earlier accident, 880 at mowry, and the traffic is still very slow as you pass this scene on the right shoulder. and we go to the south bay, 101 is the heaviest freeway, 85 and 280 are pretty good. if you have an option to get in the west valley, 280 and 85 are better than 101. 8:31, let's go back to the desk. cal fire released new numbers on the big fire burning this week in the santa cruz mountains. >> that's right. the loma fire has now burned through more than 4300 acres.
