Another semi-truck stuck at Big Rock on Lucas Valley Rd. Expect delays (Thx STG)
Power was out this morning in a large part of Inverness and the park today due to a tree falling onto power lines causing them to arc. An emergency power switch was activated immediately shutting power down to prevent any further sparks from starting a fire. Firefighters quickly sprayed water and foam at the site to prevent any chances of a fire starting. Power has been restored. Thank you first responders!

Medical emergencies in the park and in Point Reyes Station. There may be helicopter transport out of Inverness. I hope everyone is ok.
Just heard a report that a semi trailer truck is stuck on Lucas Valley Drive where they are doing construction to stop semi trailer trucks from getting stuck. Sounds like road is closed. Anyone else know anything about this?
Via County of Marin: "Construction work is fully underway to realign the curve at milepost 5.08 of Lucas Valley Road. Traffic is flowing through a single lane with alternating access and is being controlled with portable traffic signals."

No one went to space this morning in Inverness, but it was still pretty nice here.
An very sad update from PRNPS about the missing hiker. "Point Reyes National Seashore received a report of an overdue hiker on Sunday, July 18, 2021 at 10:00 pm The missing person was last seen leaving the Bear Valley Visitor Center around 5:30 pm.

Park Rangers conducted a hasty search on the Bear Valley out to the coast. Marin County Search and Rescue conducted a hasty search on Bear Valley Trail, Coast Trail, Sky Trail, Rift Zone Trail. California Highway Patrol H30 also assisted with search efforts.

The body was spotted on Monday, July 19, 2021 at 6:00 am near the former location of Arch Rock. The investigation is ongoing. The name of the victim will be released pending notification of next of kin. Additional details are not available at this time."

Our hearts go out to her family and friends.
"Some West Marin residents may need to line up to get their drinking water from a storage tank in Point Reyes Station as drought conditions worsen saltwater contamination in the main well-water supplies.

The North Marin Water District took the unprecedented step to install the 4,500-gallon water tank at the end of Commodore Webster Drive in case salt levels in well-water supplies reach higher concentrations that could pose a health risk to residents on low-salt diets.

“It’s already set up and ready to be implemented,” district General Manager Drew McIntyre said. “We have a trigger that we will activate once the sodium increases to 115 milligrams per liter. Right now it’s just a little bit under 50 milligrams per liter.”

Last year, salt levels reached 115 milligrams per liter in August but “every year is different,” McIntyre said.

Ken Levin, president of the Point Reyes Station Village Association, told the board that residents may soon have to line up with gallon jugs to get their drinking water because the district was prevented from beginning construction (on a new well) this summer.

“It’s not online because of one person who has had the tenacity to appeal every permit application on this,” Levin said."
