Eve. til 7:00 p.m. forecast to become showery behind the front with the showers continuing through Friday. The storm made driving hazardous in the Sierras as well as oh the highways of the San Francisco Bay area, which has had rain for 11 consecutive days. A 22 -car crash occurred on rain-slick Highway 17 near Los Gatos and created frayed nerves bat no injuries for morning commuters. Drivers wereadvisedby the California Highway Patrol of hazardous driving conditions in the snowy Sierra and chains were required in many places. Winds rose to 60 mph just outside the Golden Gate Bridge, ,and gusts playec^ havoc on the shore, — causing power failures in some areas." In Southern California, forecasters issued warnings for coastal residents because of churning seas that were sending 12-foot breakers' crashing against beache*; • The weather' service said SouthejB' California could expect a return of Jieavy rains for at least the, next few days, with do\ynpours measuring several inches in some areas. Windy weather was also predicted for the Los Angeles basin. A heavy snow warning was issued for the mountains of Southern California and the northern part of the Owens Vallev.

In Sacr?imento, the state Department of Water Resources said California is "in much better shape today than a year ago.". A spokesman said precipitation and snowpack were about normal for this time of the year and 4his was fii|,con­ siderable improvement over the situation in 1977. A thought for the day: British satirist Jonathan Swift said, "There is nothing in this world constant but inconstancy." REMEMBER WHEN EVERYBODY DID? WE STILL DO. Not SO long ago it would have been hard to find a savings and loan or bank^___-——-—^ that didn't pay you interest from Pwi ^ByTHE-lO^.^ the first ctf the month on savings ... -KOKI ^ THE received by the tenth of that month. And — even thout^h it wasn't the biggest news around —they all let you know about it. At the top of their lungs. (Of course, you had to leave the money there until the end of that quarter. But, you had the extra savings days to make your decision. And that was nice.) But, lately — for whatever their reasons — lots of savings and loans and banks have stopped offering the nine days of grace. True, they haven't made anywhere near as much noise about stopping. But they've stopped. So, if you're about to open a new account or add to your present savings, you might want to ask if they do or they don't. We still do.
