TEST .
Via Barbara Heenan: "I found an iPhone in a green casing at the Inverness School this morning. It looked as if it had been dropped in the Handicapped Parking slot. I set it next to the office door."
Via Marin County Sheriff's Office: "A resident on Mesa Road in Point Reyes had the catalytic converter stolen from his Toyota Prius sometime overnight between May 13th and May 14th.

There is no description of the suspect.

Catalytic converter thefts have become extremely common in Marin County, although they usually occur in areas closer to Highway 101. They are generally committed at night and can be accomplished very quickly. Catalytic converter thieves sometimes work in pairs or groups and they usually use vehicles to get around due to the size of the catalytic converters and the tools needed to remove them.

If you see a suspicious vehicle driving slowly through your neighborhood in the middle of the night, please call the Sheriff's Office and let us know.

Thanks,

Deputy Michael Thompson"
Sounds like a possible water rescue happening on Tomales Bay. Anyone have any details?
Yesterday around 7:15pm there was a "daylight fireball" event that could be seen around California. I was at a baseball game in Woodacre and saw it clear as day. A big silver ball going across the sky, anyone else see it?

This screen capture of a fire camera video shows it in the upper right corner.

"A fireball is another term for a very bright meteor, generally brighter than magnitude -4, which is about the same magnitude of the planet Venus in the morning or evening sky. A bolide is a special type of fireball which explodes in a bright terminal flash at its end, often with visible fragmentation."

Not local, but we’ve had some bears in the recent past and I wonder if this dude was making his way out here: “San Anselmo: A black bear is in a tree on Tamaulipas Ave. just a few blocks from the Hub. Police are working with wildlife response teams to get the animal out of the residential area. Photos from Dave Allen-Hughes, head of Ross Preschool who reported it to @centralmarinpa

San Anselmo Bear Update: Police waiting on @CaliforniaDFW to arrive and provide assistance getting 200 to 300 lb, male bear down from 40 ft up a tree. Fish & Game ETA 30 mins, per @centralmarinpa spokesperson Margo Rohrbacher. Officers making noise to keep bear from coming down.”

If you want to check out the new record store (Loose Joints Records) in Point Reyes Station, this is happening: "Hey Yo! We will be opening the shop this week on Thursday (May 13) from 5-8 or 9 pm. Local folks... come down and hang. We will have some beer, wine and cheese, and of course records."
UPDATE: Sounds like a truck is stuck and they're turning people around. Plan accordingly -- Accident on Lucas Valley Rd. near big rock. Does anyone have any details?
For those living in Point Reyes and Inverness ""Starting this week, Ghilotti Construction will be removing a lot of excess material from the Pt. Reyes Seashore FLAP project (around 12,000 CY). The contractor is continually reminding the truck drivers to follow local traffic laws, including speed limits." (via MarinDPW)

Also, the red flag warning has been extended to Tuesday night at 6pm then cooler weather for the rest of the week.
Someone hit a power pole on Lucas Valley Rd. on the east side of Big Rock. Traffic control in place, definitely one lane closed, maybe two. Expect delays, plan accordingly. (thx AP/LP)
