in the cage the size of the coffin for four years. we can get rid of these cages and allow them to have more space and allowing them to more space is better for them, it also reduces the risk of disease because they are not cramped together as much as they otherwise would and states right here in california have passed laws to ban these pet dresses and more states should do it. food companies should band these practices. we work withth mcdonald's to announce they are going 10100% all their eggs. every company should follow through on such a policy. if we can mandate these changes we cannot only improve the treatment of the animals we can reduce the risk of future pandemics within these factory farm operations. >> as a consumer we go to the grocery store and we see cage free eggs or cage free chicken.

get into noon. we can see the winds gusting to near 15 to 20 miles an hour. that's enough to give you a bit of a windchill. it will be breezy enough to make it feel cool throughout the day and once we get into sunday the wind turns off. daytime highs might see 60 degrees on the thermometer. it will feel cooler than that because of the windchill factor. factor that in. here is a pretty look from our camera that sits on top looking back toward the city skyline. that is san francisco. this is what it looks like over the bay bridge and down in san jose we rate for the rain to get here and that will happen in the next 30 minutes to an hour. same story over here and although we don't get a lot of measurable rain it looks like it could rain here and that is the camera above dublin and light showers throughout the late morning and right now low 50s and we warm up to the low 60s. let's show you what happens in the mountains.
