Sunset in Pleasanton (Roberta Gonzales)

Will Tonight’s Sunset Be As Spectacular As Wednesday’s?

Sunlight is made up of all kinds of different colors of light! Keep in mind, each color of light has a wavelength. At sunset, we see more red light because it is being scattered through tiny particles in the lower atmosphere. These particles are referred to as aerosols. These aerosols or tiny particles are from burning fossil fuels or naturally from soil or dust, perhaps even salt from the ocean.

Drought Reduced Reservoir

How Bad Is The Drought After That Latest Big Storm?

After four days of rainfall, the San Francisco Bay Area has seen SOME relief to some areas, while other regions remain in “EXTREME to EXCEPTIONAL Drought. Over a foot of rain accumulated in Venado (12 miles west of Healdsburg) and as a result, the coastal mountains are now considered in a “Severe Drought”, not as dismal as the remaining Bay Area. In fact, many interior valleys received less than 1 inch of precipitation in the rain gauge and the Salinas Valley tallied less than 1/2 inch from the Friday through Monday rain event. Not nearly enough to note markedly improved conditions there.
