every story needs a zoo angle

So yeah, it's raining here. Really raining. And blowing -- this morning on the Bay Bridge water was shooting up from the grates that connect the sections of roadway, thanks to the wind tunnel on the lower deck. Never seen that before.

SFGate's reporting half a million homes without power, a bunch of highway, bridge and tunnel closures, BART shutdowns, and, of course, this gem: "The San Francisco Zoo is closed because of downed trees that pose a potential escape risk with animals."
