Since 1951, there have been 26 El Niño events. Of those, 11 have been weak, 7 moderate, 5 strong and 3 very strong. Overall during all of them, rainfall in Southern California averaged 126% of normal. In the Bay Area it was 109% of normal.
During two of the three very strong El Niños, the winters of 1982-83 and 1997-98 were among the wettest in recorded California history, with massive Sierra Nevada snowpacks and major flooding.
The third, in 2015-16, was something of a bust. Hyped as a “Godzilla El Niño,” that event did see big winter storms, but they ended up hitting Oregon and Washington, dashing hopes of breaking a California drought, which didn’t end until big storms finally arrived in 2017.

The Feminist Street Initiative aims to rename streets across the country after historic women. It comes after the fifth anniversary of the nationwide Women’s March and in the days before the start of Women’s History Month in March. The Women’s March Foundation is campaigning for streets to be named after Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Gloria Steinem and Maya Angelou, among others.
First It Was Statues, Then Festivals, Now Streets With Mens’ Names Got To Go
Get all kinds of credit offers to my name in the mail, this is the first for the fake business.
Hmmm. Yearly profits: about minus $300. Should be good for a $60,000 credit line in the age of Bidenomics.
One solution. Or is removing dead birds from window sills without a work order from the HOA against the rules?
Uh, Just Pick It Up Yourself?
Carmel-Fresno Airport has a nice sound, right? Is this the same group that wanted to change the name of the Stockton airport to San Francisco Stockton Regional Airport.
Should we all just start tacking “Carmel” to everything to increase it’s value to the less than intelligent tourists?
A Carmel tourism group has proposed changing the name of the Monterey Regional Airport — as it’s currently known — to the Carmel-Monterey Regional Airport, according to a proposal to the airport district’s board of directors this week.
Representatives for the group, Visit Carmel, which is funded by hotel and restaurant customers, showed Monterey Peninsula Airport District’s five directors Wednesday a presentation outlining why it believes including “Carmel” in the name would benefit the airport and the city.

On November 28, 2020 at approximately 6:57 p.m., Monterey Police Officers were dispatched to Mandeville Court on a report of a burglary in progress at a closed business. The person reporting the incident observed the suspect inside the business removing items before leaving in a pickup truck. Responding officers located the truck on Highway 68 and stopped it.
The driver of the truck was identified as Scott Russo, 47 years-old of Monterey. Russo was found to be on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) for a previous conviction of burglary and had an outstanding felony arrest warrant for burglary. Russo was arrested and in possession of burglary tools and a small amount of cocaine. Officers searched the truck and located stolen property that
had been taken from the business on Mandeville Court.

The application for the project was made by Vista Nadura LLC and developer Nader Agha, who were told in September by the Monterey County Planning Commission that their application is incomplete. They are appealing that decision to the county supervisors.
The site is located behind Carmel Valley Manor. The subdivision dates back to 2002, and Agha contends his application should have been certified as complete 13 years ago. A county report at the time indicated that the application was determined to be incomplete “because the applicant had not submitted proof of adequate water supply.”
Nader, Got Any Water?
New Recreation Trail accessories to remain safe on that dangerous trail:
The DA’s Office said a man was biking home from work on the Recreation Trail in Monterey on July 28, 2000, when Sean Adams lunged out from the side of the trail and threw a jar full of acid at the cyclist, causing severe chemical burns to his face and upper torso. Officers located Adams after the attack and he still had the jar in his hand. Officers tried to detain him but he fought wildly and had to be pepper-sprayed before he could be subdued. The DA’s Office says Adams was extremely delusional, belligerent and screamed nonsensical statements.
In 2003, Adams was found not guilty by reason of insanity and committed to the Department of State Hospitals, where he has remained since then. Psychologists and psychiatrists working at the Department of State Hospitals make a recommendation to the DA’s Office for either release or continued commitment of Adams every two years and they recommended the continued commitment of Adams, 49.
Adams objected and was entitled to a jury trial to determine if he should be released. A Monterey County jury returned a verdict Thursday that his civil commitment should be extended two years.

Can’t get free plastic bags at the store, but cities were giving away plastic bags to pick up dog poop. Carmel has halted the giveaway.
. . the little baggies available from dispensers all over town that dog walkers use to clean up after their pets,cost taxpayers more than $20,000 annually, city administrator Chip Rerig said this week. So, like many other niceties, they are getting cut out of the budget.
