a gift card to a store you really don't like? here are ideas to make the most of it. sell it for cash or swap it out with someone who would lick it or swap cards with someone else. you can always regift it if you are a regifter and the last two options, you can donate it to a favorite cause or use it to buy somebody else a gift. you can save yourself money doing that. depending on the company if your card is lost or stolen, you can get it replaced if you have proof of purchase. hang on to the receipts. live in the newsroom, today in the bay. >> a few good tips. >> if you found a new high def tv, you might have spent the entire holiday trying to get it to work. the tvs were being offered for the best prices during the hol dis. the best challenge is to hook it up to receive local high def

from the health care overhaul legislation, but come january 1st, the new year, president obama will achieve the same goal through a medicare regulation. under the new policy, the government will pay doctors who advise patients on options for end of life care. including how aggressively a patient wishes to be treated if they are so sick they cannot make health health care decisions for themselves. medicare will cover voluntary advanced care planning as part of an annual visit. it gives people more control over the care they receive. opponents while they refer to the death panel talk of euthanasia. it does not specifically have the words advanced care planning. it doesn't have those words, but through strategic writing, the president heads got then through again. taking effect this saturday, january 1st. reporting live from the
satellite center, marla tellez, today in the bay. >> thank you very much, marla. scanners and pat-downs are here to stay. that's the word from homeland security director janet napolitano. she said both the scanners and pat-downs kept dangerous devices from getting into planes in the u.s. some complained about the invasion of privacy, but napolitano said safety is the number one priority. >> many passengers might be happy to get through security because of big winner storms that is closing airports up and down the east coastful they are slowing down in other places. tracie potts is right in the middle of it. somehow washington, d.c. really avoided the direct hit. i see clear roads and grass behind you. >> reporter: yep. you have to search hard to find a patch of snow. more snowfall in the suburbs than the city. moderate snowfall, but nothing
like what you saw in philadelphia, new york, and down south. take a look at pictures. they had to cancel the game on again for tuesday in new york. massive snow. a foot or a foot and a half or more in places. it caused really big problems on the roads and really big delays at the airports. all the major airports shut down in new york. today the big story is really going to be trying to get those people back home as it really filtered throughout the system. down south in virginia and north carolina and georgia. almost a foot in areas. amazing. >> it is amazing how much they are getting. she is like in this zone where they didn't get any. >> we will have a good zone today. >> hope so. >> let's check with chris 10a. >> a definite good zone. the rain returns as we head into tomorrow. i think we will get another good day for the first half.
we are dealing with a little bit of patchy dense fog. take it easy in the north bay with less than a quarter of a mile. temperatures are creeping up a little bit. up to 41 degrees in gilroy. san jose with 45 and warming up to about 58 degrees as the daytime high. let's take a look at the next weather maker. high pressure is firmly in control. you can see the clouds arking up and around an area of high pressure. as we head through, a big system will push in and high pressure to the east. we could pick up to two inches of rain in the north and east bay before wednesday morning. get out there and enjoy if you can. 59 degrees in san jose. 58 for santa cruz. snow levels with another system that will move through over the course of thursday into friday. we could see snow levels dropping to 4,000 feet. a dusting of snow likely in the santa cruz mountains. happy new year. it will be a cold one.
over to you. >> talking about the fog and the snow. we will watch out for that and the reports. no snow for the commuters. hardly any cause for the commute. no metering lights, but you have the fog to contend with. ohm reflecking a little slowing because of the conditions. that's one of the major factors in determining how fast you should drive. only as fast as the conditions allow. still just 19 minutes off of the fog advisory. benicia as well. 24 out of the caldecott moving nicely. antioch shows slowing and they will click on and off towards pittsburgh with no major slowing. each livermore with a nice drive. we just see a little slowing showing up on the maps. 37 and also 280 north off of the 680 interchange. sharks play l.a. beat l.a. and beat the commute
as well. it's light so far. that's how things are going on the highways right now. >> let's go to kimberly ter to see if the east coast storm is affecting our airport. good morning. >> no major problems. we have been watching a steady stream of cars dropping people off for the early morning flights. san francisco is a completely different story since that airport has more direct flights to the northeast. it is impacted by the massive storm hitting the new york area. so far we have heard 20 inbound and six outbound flights have been canceled and and a halfers are not experiencing any cancelations yet, they are having to elbow their way through security. pretty busy. i'm pretty early so i can handle it. >> not bad. it's a little more crowded than i thought it would be at 6:00 in the morning, but not bad. >> airlines are contacting
performs to let them know of canceled flights to get them rescheduled. bottom line, prepare for delays as the daywears on. you are advised to call ahead or check online before heading to the airport, especially if your flight is headed to the northeast. live in oakland, kimberly terry today in the bay. >> thanks, kimberly. certainly the weekend may have been dampened by cold and temperatures. how about this for a travel horror story? about 200 people were supposed to fly from charlotte to new york. they spent two hours on the runway so the plane could be deiced. then the plane made it over la guardia and told they couldn't land. they had to circle the airport. >> i flew over la guardia for about an hour. >> did you see anything besides snow in. >> we didn't even see new york. we circled for an hour and never dropped down.
>> they're transferred us to harrisburg. >> i was supposed to get a bus to la guardia which they cancel canceled. >> they were rerouted to harris, but pennsylvania and went back to charlotte. they ended up right back in north carolina. we talked about the snow in filly and it did something as you may have heard hasn't happened in 60 years. the game was canceled that was supposed to be sunday night on nbc bay area. they are going to have to reschedule. they could not play. they are bringing in front loaders and can't get rid of the snow. it's piling up. the game has been rescheduled. here's a look at what you can expect. it's going to be played sunday night football on nbc bay area, tomorrow night, tuesday night 5:00 p.m., vikings versus eagles that you can check out here on nbc bay area. >> they need seat warmers. >> and then some. >> we want to check the morning commute with mike. see how things are looking out there.
