First, so none of you panic, I have had no reports of any problems on Highway One, thus the “dirt” in my title. A couple of yahoos showed up at my place a bit ago, on foot. They had gotten themselves stuck in a “ditch” in the middle of the road. I sent an email to Sherry Tune about this. I have been literally begging the USFS to grade this road for YEARS! Last time it was graded was the Plaskett II fire of 2000. These yahoos are really lucky that Rock Knocker just happened to stop by my place today, or they would be outta luck. My neighbor’s car is in the shop, and Rock Knocker is giving him a ride on Monday to go pick it up, and I won’t go out when conditions on Plaskett are this bad, so I would have lent them my phone to call 805-927-HELP, Cambria AAA, who is the only one who will come up here, and it is damn expensive!
On to rain totals, my gauge read .9 this morning, which is all that I recorded for yesterday’s downpour. I have doubts about the accuracy of that reading, however. Debbie, in Big Sur Valley, reports just under 1.5 inches for that neck of our neighborhood.
Warmer, drier weather supposedly on the way for this next week.

We got all of 1″ for all that hoorah on Willow Creek. For the season so far it’s 6.1″. Fire danger is over, yehah!
Sorry about your road littered with yahoos! Ah wilderness. I just came back from Salinas. Way there: lots of small fallen stones and rocks and dirt in the usual places; way back: zero. Cleaned up and good traffic flow.
We’re still drying out up here on Clear Ridge.
Scary time of year for you guys. Those guys were lucky that you could help. Stay safe, everyone!
