Weather Report 11/6/10 & Misc. reports

1 pm – blue sky is visible through the clouds, and while cool, it is turning into a very pleasant day.

11 am – What is the weather like where you are? Here, it looks like rain is on its way, and I did have a very light sprinkle or two earlier. NOAA says it is only a “chance” of rain this afternoon, with the heavier rain coming in tomorrow, with the possibility of .75-2.0 inches in these mountains. I don’t know. From where I sit, the rain this afternoon looks like more than a mere “chance.” I’ll keep everyone updated.

Also, was out and about in Big Sur Village last evening, and saw the Food & Wine Festival was off to a great start. Ventana had their wine pairings in the room near the restaurant, but the restaurant itself was open for regular business. Big Sur River Inn had their beer and food pairing, but the restaurant was closed for regular business. So call first.

Save the date of November 17th. I have been informed there will be a fund-raising on that date at the River Inn for Big Sur local Rachael Short, who was in an auto accident on Halloween evening. Rachael has had two surgeries and could have a long recovery ahead.

Finally, Dan Danbom has sent me some gorgeous photos I will be posting this weekend, after weather reports.
