“See ya June!”

From the messy desk of Amanda Eichstaedt, June 28, 2022

July!

March allegedly comes in like a lion, and leaves like a lamb. April and May were windy, and we had some late season rain.  June brings the onset of summer, and the the turn towards less and less daylight as we head towards the fall. The naked lady flower leaves are all drying up, and the growing weeds are slowing down in the yard. Vegetation continues to dry out, and the term “golden state” starts to make more sense. And the wind persists.

Yesterday I drove to Santa Rosa to pick up my visiting niece at the airport. Around Cotati I drove into a wall of smoke from a vegetation fire that was burning west of 101. It was scary and it turns out the fire was burning very near one of KWMR’s employee’s home. I later learned that someone died in association with that fire. The smoke had cleared and on the way south we could see the lovely fog hanging on the coast, and another big cloud, which turned out to be smoke from a fire near Novato. 

Enough already, and the dry season is fully upon us. So it is time to do the following things, if you have not yet done so.

A reminder with the Fourth of July right around the corner that fireworks are illegal in Marin County. However, the Marin County Fair will be doing them with trained professionals and a permit, so head on over to check them out!

We were turned on to a great wildfire APP called Watch Duty, that has some great up to the minute information on fires. Check it out.

And….if you are a youth, or you know of a youth that might be interested in serving as a KWMR Youth Board Representative, please apply now for the coming school year! We had such a delightful experience with our very first Youth Board Reps – Elena Rodoni and Sophia Buckholtz, and we look forward to new reps in the fall! Application is HERE.
