  1. Thanks for the ongoing updates. I just heard Monterey waves registered biggest in 30 some odd years, and over 30 feet. Haven’t had the chance to see yet but it must be something. We got a strong downpour around 1 pm today, some small hail, the sun’s fulsome in a blue sky right now.

  6. Kate, I’ve been wanting to support your update efforts, linked is a updateable and webserved map for closure point status. Might help in “big picture” view of where the blocks are. We could add icons for the CV and Palo closures. http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/map/big-sur-closures_122609#10/35.9869/-121.4999

  10. The link on the pinned post to the map page is busted (goes to wp-admin). Not sure what the permanent link is to the cool pdf maps of named points.

  12. JWC, what is the source data for that map? It has greater detail than most topo maps I’ve seen of the area.
