  1. Models are coming into better agreement for an atmospheric river event on Wednesday. Big Sur looks to be in for potential flash flood risk. With the ground being so saturated it could get interesting around here. Winds also look to ramp up to 60 to 70mph gusts. Bottom line is to take the next two days to stock up on supplies, make sure propane tanks are full and get some sand bags from Pfeiffer turnout just incase. Oh yeah, forecast has more storms to follow the one midweek but don’t look to be as strong.

  2. Did we meet recently standing in line at a store in downtown Monterey?? I’m the women with the cute little chihuahua who moved back home to Monterey after leaving in the late 70s to live my best life? You mentioned you wrote a blog about BigSur. If so please visit my Facebook or email me please 😎✌
