Photos of Little Sur Fire

Added a new link to the blogroll — the BSVFB. This is a place to make donations and buy things which will support our local fire brigade! I know that economic times are difficult right now, but if everyone of my blog readers donates only $5 or $10, it will make a HUGE difference for the next fire season. And for those of us who have benefited from their services, here is an easy way to donate and/or support their efforts!

Speaking of the Big Sur Volunteer Fire Brigade, did you know about the fire on Saturday that they responded to? Nor did I until Firefox informed me. When I wrote about it, I was contacted with these photos.

Daniel Danbom sent me these photographs of the fire at the Little Sur on Saturday that he thought my readers might enjoy. Thanks so much Daniel. If you want to see more of his photographs, check out his website:



Clear weather predicted for tomorrow, Tuesday, 12/23, so unless someone sends me something, I doubt I will be posting — UNLESS I finally get around to posting the BSMAAC meeting notes, and Cal-Trans projects. No promises, I finally don’t have an emergency with my work!

Rain Report, 12/22/08

10:00 am update – quite chilly, but there is sun. Cal-Trans still reporting no problems, and CHP still reporting a lane closure at MM 50. I don’t know what to tell you.

8:00 am update  – 2.25 inches last night, bringing the season total to 8.75 inches. WOW! That was some rainfall. And this storm was the light one? Big Sur River flow peaked at 85 cubic feet per second. Quite a spike from the 15 cubic feet per second which is the usual.

Per the CHP website, there is a slide (it doesn’t actually SAY slide, but what else could it be?) at MM 50, blocking one lane, just reported at 8 am. It is not on the Cal-Trans website, yet. MM 50 is between River Inn and Andrew Molera SP. And remember, my friends, the slides do not stop just because the rain has!

BTW, while showers have not been taken out of the forecast for Christmas Day, snow has. Rather have snow than rain. Oh, well.
