First, the Art from here and there, a fundraiser for the Big Sur Health Center is this Sunday at 2:00 pm at Ventana. A reliable source says a Barbara Spring piece has been added to the available art!
Second, the photo contest for the BigSurKate header photo ends at Midnight (or by the time I check my email in the morning.
Third, and last, Los Padres National Forest is increasing staffing on all districts, including Monterey, bringing in teams and equipment from other forests in anticipation of possible dry lightning. A source in Paso already reported the build up of thunderheads moving in a NW direction towed us earlier this afternoon. Pay attention, and report any smoke sightings immediately!
Have a great and safe weekend.
