It’s currently 5:24am and I am in the storm before the calm. No, I’m not talking about the local weather which thankfully has provided a few storms since last I wrote, balancing out a bit with the generally calm winter we’ve had.

A lot of people view insurance as a mandated requirement that is costly and confusing, however, if the fires taught us anything, it is that the proper insurance is an absolute necessity!

When the Tubbs Fire roared through Santa Rosa’s Larkfield area in October, it not only gutted the northern end of the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, but also the nearby sculpture garden where a number of Sculptor Bruce Johnson’s (formandenergy.com ) monumental redwood-and-copper sculptures were on display. Sadly, some of the pieces were burned to the ground. The fickle flames left others severely charred, while some pieces went virtually untouched.

The return of the rains has been most welcome. The creeks are talking to us again. I noticed yesterday the little waterfall on Graton Rd. has returned for the winter. All the vegetation has been washed of its accumulated dust and ash bringing out the vibrant colors of the fall.
