I think Hurricane Sandy awakened those who still question climate change. What is odd to me is that Cal Trans has their storage lot right next to Manzanita parking lot which is underwater a great deal of the time these days. What's not to notice?
I learn there is now a group documenting the high tides: http://www.californiakingtides.org
I get email notices on the tides, so am intrigued that we have the technology to immediately notify when the road is closed, but a current inability to solve and fix the problems that cause the flooding. I don't live in the wilderness. When traffic is flowing, I can be in the city of San Francisco in ten minutes. Perhaps this is a deliberate wabi-sabi: The walkway is swept. It looks too perfect. Shake the tree, and watch the leaves fall to create new ways to see and be.
To Joy of Change!
