The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has opened their wood smoke rebate program for applications. If you have been thinking about removing your fireplace or wood stove or replacing it to a cleaner burning electric heat pump or gas insert, you can receive a sizeable rebate from the Air District. The County of Marin provides an additional rebate that you must apply to separately.

Step One: make sure you are in a designated high wood smoke impact area: https://www.google.com/maps/d/

Step Two: register with the Air District BEFORE you start your project: https://grantapps.baaqmd.gov/

Step Three: once approved by the Air District, complete your project and save all documents.

Step Four: Submit your documents for your rebate.

Step Five: apply to the County of Marin's wood smoke program. You can download a copy of the application at www.maringreenbuilding.org on the Wood Smoke tab.

There’s a lively, hopeful display underway these days along Lagunitas Creek in west Marin County, where the return of winter rains has drawn endangered coho salmon up into the stream to spawn. After decades of watching Central California Coast coho stock diminish, it’s heartening to know 3-year-old fish have found their way back home to reproduce and keep the species going at least a while longer.

Coast Guard and local emergency crews scrambling to find someone in the water right now it sounds like. Huge swell filling in. Anyone else know more details? Hopefully everyone stays safe.

Do people have local rain fall measurements? I heard up to five inches in some West Marin spots. "Total rainfall for yesterday, January 8, 2018 at our weather station in Bear Valley was 3.85 inches!" (Via PRNPS)

Not the greatest photo, but we spied a bald eagle walking around in the marsh end of the Nicasio Reservoir this morning. #baldeagle

Prepare accordingly. Good chance power will go out at some point with that wind. "A potent storm system will begin to spread rainfall over the area late Sunday night. Rain rates will intensify by Monday afternoon. Periods of heavy rain are likely from Monday afternoon through Monday night. Strong gusty winds expected on Monday." - via NWS Bay Area
