Lastly, there are two “seasons” on BigSurKate — fire season and rainy season. Twice a year I change my links over from one season to the other. The “change over” takes hours, so it is sometimes spread over days. It is during this “transition time” you will notice the two categories simultaneous — one growing and one shrinking. Always a fun time for me.
