Next week’s weather system

Remember this forecast for the next storm?

This is what NOAA said this afternoon: “…the national WPC suggests
local amounts of 3-5 inches over the highest Big Sur peaks with
slightly less over the Santa Cruz mountains,”

Sunday should be clear, a good time for any additional preparation you may have forgotten. Remember, all that rain on our mountains translates to water rolling downhill toward our highway…

Are you missing a rooster?

Hello Kate,

A rooster has been seen on the Bobcat Trail in Andrew Molera State Park adjacent to Hwy 1 several times over the last couple of weeks. He was last seen today but has eluded capture.


Specifically, we’ve had reports of the rooster on the Bobcat Trail anywhere north of Cpt. Cooper School all the way to the main park entrance. If somebody happens to be missing a rooster in the area, that would be the place to start looking.

Many thanks,
