Drought: Water situation getting worse, Aug 2013

While we've had a couple of years of OK rainfall, California appears to be heading into fairly extreme drought conditions, and the long term forecasts are currently bad. You can check out the US Drought Monitor, which includes a Long Term Drought Prediction graphic. There's also the California Department of Water Resources, which manages a page of California Reservoir Graphs. Looking at the page, you can see that most major reservoirs are well below average capacity. If you click on the reservoir names, you'll get a detail graph for that location -- for instance, click here for the Lake Shasta graph. You'll see that the levels are low and are still falling fast. There have been no calls for conservation, but if we don't get some rain, they'll be coming soon.

I haven't yet tried the new Searsucker in the Town Center, but I hear that starting Monday, July 29, 2013, Searsucker Del Mar will be launching their lunch menu. Served from 11:30am-2pm, Monday-Friday.

An information session will be held at the Carmel Valley Doubletree on September 9, 2013.

Cinepolis too expensive? Go somewhere else!

Everyone seems to like the experience at Cinepolis Del Mar, but it's too expensive! Paying $20 for a movie just seems ridiculous, especially when you're taking your family. Well, here's a sensible alternative: the AMC La Jolla 12 (La Jolla Village Drive exit off I-5, across from the Mormon Temple) has upgraded many of their theaters to very nice reclining chairs at a much lower price. You can now enjoy a comfortable movie experience for $11 (or $15 for 3D movies, or $6.50 for the early matinee in 2D!) Visit the La Jolla 12 Website for schedule and pricing. Maybe the competition will eventually get us lower prices at our local theater.

Summer Concerts and Movies at the Market

The Carmel Valley Farmers Market will have a concert on Thursday, July 18, 2013 as part of their "Summer Movies and Music at the Market" series! July 18 will feature Guitar music and Flamenco Dancer.
