County road department says they are not plowing the back road any more due to winter conditions. Be careful it’s going to be slippery and icy in the mornings.

***************************************************************************************************************

Highway 70 reassesment of closure on Monday with Caltrans and fire officials to determine WHEN hwy 70 will be re- opened.

The powers that be have rescinded the burn ban BUT issue a warning to be careful and use caution if you feel the need to burn yard stuff.
We have had alot of rain and snow at Bucks Lake, there is more on the way this next week. Also this is helping the fire fighting in the Camp fire the containment is 95% with no further acreage burned. The only non contained area is in steep terrain and not accessable so crews are standing by near area. Contingent lines are in place in this area.

I think they are getting a handle on it.

Yes Hwy 70 is closed. And the back road also. Rain in the forecast

Today I think about the arduous task of going house to house, business to business looking for the remains of someones loved one.
This horrible task is assigned to our fellow Search and Rescue teams from all over California. I have had the privilege to work with the dedicated people of Marin County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team in the past and can without a doubt say this is one of the most dedicated and professional teams.

As these searchers work side by side with other VOLUNTEER, TRAINED, SKILLED, SAR persons there is no doubt they will accomplish the task of locating our missing friends and family. I hope this brings closure to the many who are impacted by this tragic event.

I have seen that several of Marin SAR are leading the hundreds of professional volunteers and I can only say thank you from the bottom of my heart. To take time away from your lives to help others is truly admirable.

While I am not physically with you as you accomplish this task I salute you. Thanks Mike, Rich, and all the others.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
