"So I love to think about that while I'm walking around these towns looking at the buildings and the trees and kind of just thinking about the first people that arrived to that area and turned it into what it is. Excellent. You were standing on the prettiest spot in the Mendocino area. Where are you standing on what are you looking at? Oh, this is really tricky because I think it's a secret spot and I can't tell you the directions. I could tell you the direction. But you'd have to kill me. So there's a secret spot, and I'm actually happy to share it with you after this. I just have to go look up my directions. Between montecino and fort Bragg, where there's a street that you pass and if you know that it's there, you take a turn off the highway and you go down a road and you park and there's a little trail head that only locals know about and you walk through this little part of wooded area for about a quarter of a mile, and then you end up out on the coast on the cliffs, just over crashing waves. And there's a private beach that no one knows about. And you can just hang out there for hours, either on the beach, on the cliffs, it's probably equally pretty as the Mendocino headlands, right? So there's nothing you're missing. If you're on the Mendocino headlands, but it's kind of cool that nobody really knows about it, except locals. Excellent. And I assume that people can contact you and you'll try to address it. You can. I could find the text that I send to my Friends. When I tell them where it is. And one thing that makes you laugh and say only in Mendocino. I actually included this in an article I wrote recently for edible Marin and wine country. And one of the things I mentioned was, oh, it's so melissino, right? It's so Anderson valley. I was hanging out at this apple farm, which has some B and B kind of cottages and talking to the owner. And the owner had just this attitude, right, of like eh, no big deal. Don't care what you do. Don't care what you don't do. Just relax and hang out. I asked him for some suggestions. And like, what to do? And he's like, you're here, isn't that enough? And I'm like, yeah. It kind of is. You are so correct, but I'm a journalist. I'm going to have to ask again. But I actually ended up putting that in my article because that kind of defines why I go to the casino and what I love about the feel there is that people just don't give a bleep, right? Like, they're not there to try to create like a heelsberg downtown or a nap in downtown where you're instagramming every plate of food and people are coming out of limos. That is not what they're there for. They moved up there. Most of them in the 70s and 80s because it was a beautiful, beautiful area of the coast that hadn't been developed yet, and they don't want to be in that shiny gentrified crowded Instagram world. And I love that about them. They're more likely to tell you just sit down, hang out, then they are to try to pack your mind with a bunch of itineraries suggestions. Excellent. And if you had to summarize the Mendocino area in just three words, what three words are you going to use? Calming. Mystical. Okay. Scenic. Excellent..

"It feels like when you're hiking there, the entire world has faded away. You can't hear traffic. You can't even hear people that are on other trails, even if it's crowded. It's just this wonderful, quiet, green forest. So Russian culture is maybe my top pick for a hike. But it's also a great park to camp in. So if you're camping, because you're going the budget route, right? Which I do often. Russia got just wonderful place to camp at because you can just get up in the morning and head out to some of the most spectacular views of the coast right there in the park. And then you can go on a hike. And you don't have to leave or get in your car. Excellent. If you're not camping and you're not on a budget yes, little order in just south of Mendocino is beautiful. Historic, beautiful place right on the bluffs overlooking the ocean. I should say that they sponsored me to stay there. So little disclosure there, but I loved it. It was quite modern and yet quite historic at the same time. Yeah, and little river is great if you want to be a bit more removed, right? Like you don't mind that you're not going to be walking distance to things. No, right, you have to drive to get them in the scene from there. Exactly. If you want luxury and to be able to walk to downtown Mendocino, I like the Mendocino seaside cottages. Okay. We're talking a place that has every single amenity you could imagine. Steam bathtub, steam room, views of the ocean, and you're also minutes away from downtown Mendocino. So. It's very small, but you've got all the luxuries you need, great linens, fireplaces. You got a little mini fridge, little stove. And then when you pop out of your front door, you basically walk along the ocean front in the Mendocino headlands, about 5 minutes, and then you're right in the little center of the town. Okay. So that's another luxury option if you want to walk to places. Excellent. Where to next? Anything else we want to do in Mendoza. Sites or restaurants or shops? Yeah, so Mendocino itself is just so charming, just walk everywhere. Just look at everything. You're going to see it. I don't need if I tell you there's a church. It's not going to help you. You're going to see the church when you get there. I mean, this is a very small town. But it is beautiful. So just take your time and just enjoy the fact that it's one of the few places in the United States and in California where you can walk and do anything you need to do. One of my absolute favorite places to stop in the morning when I'm walking around Mendocino is the good life bakery. I get my gluten free baked goods. I get my cappuccino. I walk out to the headlands. One of my favorite places to stop to eat is Patterson's pub. It's not the nicest restaurant there. And I am a foodie. I love fine dining. But when I go to the coast, I don't need fancy. I just want casual and comfortable. And the pub there, it just has that feeling where it's the only place you're going to go where there's equally locals and tourists. And there's almost always a guy playing the guitar. No matter what time of year you're there. So you can go grab your burger and fries or your crab cakes or your crab Louie..

"But if you have the time, of course, if you do do the coastal route, you're not going to get Anderson valley, right? So what I typically do is I go up through the Anderson valley and then I come back along the coast, the slow route. Okay. But either way, yes, it's all scenic. As you're coming up into county, you're seeing the ocean off to your left, crashing ways, brilliant Turquoise water. Things start to look different. You start seeing little old school cemeteries and kind of older school buildings, the crowds thin out. And then you get to the little town, the little village I like to say of Mendocino. And it sort of feels like when you get into Mendocino, you can just drop your car off and just start walking, right? Because the entire headland park there. You've got miles of coastal trails. You got restaurants, you got supermarkets. So you mentioned Hitler's park. So it's on a Peninsula. And surrounded by park. Yeah. And if you walked all of Mendocino in every single street, it would take you 20 minutes. Yeah, it's really it's people can't I don't think they can conceptualize how real just cool this experience is. There's no other place I can think of in California where you've got this kind of setting that's so small and quaint and yet at every single turn no matter where you look, you've got the ocean. And you're just blocks away from it. You can literally hit the pub and be at the cliffs in 5 minutes or the pub. So I love it. That's one of my favorite places to hang out. There's just endless views along all these miles of coastline. There's beaches you can overlook. Blah, blah, blah, right? But then I don't want to stop there because that's just one place you can go. There's also a lot of parks near the town of Mendocino. Just before Mendocino and also after Mendocino between Mendocino and fort Bragg..

"And what you're going to find in Anderson valley is a wealth of amazing wineries. You've also got a really great sight over there. You've got a cool brewery. You can do both wine tastings and cider tastings. There's a state park. You can take a hike and there's some great places to eat if you spend the night there, as well as to lay your head. So first two days, Anderson valley find beer cider, awesome. Now you're gonna head out to the coast from the Anderson valley. And this is where most people go when they do go to Mendocino county. They just go straight to the coast. You got everything out in Mendocino. So first for where to base yourself, you have two choices. You can choose Mendocino, the actual town of Mendocino is very quaint and very small. It looks like it hasn't evolved since 1948, which is really cool. You don't see that that often. But it's also been very well maintained. So it's not grubby or trashy. It's a little cute little white painted churches and little roads you can walk around to every business. The crushing waves are all around you at any moment. So that's one choice where to base yourself. Or you can go ten minutes up the road to fort Bragg, which is another place you can base yourself and also a great option. Not as charming of a town to walk around, but really well situated to visit ocean and scenic spots and hiking. So those are your two choices for where to base yourself. Now you've got three days in which to enjoy this whole coastal region. A few of the things you can do are visit beaches such as glass beach in fort Bragg, which is famous and the noyo headlands, which is a historic coastal monument, which is amazing, wildlife everywhere, miles stretching along the coast. You can jaunt around the headlands in the town of Mendocino, which is basically if you're in the town of Mendocino, you can literally just walk a few blocks out to the tufts along the cliffs and you've got a few miles of trails that you can wind around as you enjoy beach views, ocean views. There's rock arches and formations, lots of wildlife. And Brooke, I'm going to pause you here a bit if we're going to start to get in more detail than let's back up into it from the beginning. You started us in the Anderson valley and you mentioned cider's breweries and wineries and state parks, but you didn't get specific. So let's go to the specifics. There's more wineries than we can visit. So what are your favorites? I like a lot of them. I'm just going to mention a few of my top favorites. So drew wines, which is owned by a wonderful couple. Molly and Jason, that's my favorite place for Pinot noirs in Anderson valley. So they've got a tasting room in philo, which is a little town in Anderson valley. Toulouse vineyards, which has great white tools..

"I don't think everyone who isn't my age has heard about, for instance, we used to talk about the wine area in California as Napa Sonoma and Mendocino. I feel like Mendocino was kind of slipped off that list a bit. We don't talk about it necessarily as much, but we are talking about Northern California to put it on the map. But what's your connection with Mendocino? Okay, so a couple things. One, you are correct. People don't really talk about Mendocino wine or wine country, mostly because they've done a very good job of branding and educating the public on the Anderson valley, which is a specific region within Mendocino. So people are more likely to say the Anderson valley than to say Mendocino county wide, for instance. So that's one thing. Two, you are right. Maybe the reason that I'm traveling to Mendocino isn't only wine. And for me, it never started out that way. Like when I was a little kid and I ended up in Mendocino with my family at like 7 or 8 years old. It's always been all about the ocean and the coast and the cliffs and the sort of mystic little coastal town kind of feel. That's how we started, why we started going to Mendocino. And it's a big part of why I continue going now. Excellent. And I think maybe we just answer this question. Why should somebody go to medicine? Okay, so somebody that's a stranger, right? So maybe you're not a California. Maybe you're not even a Northern California. And maybe you're from Southern California. Why would you come here? No matter where you're from. One, it is unbelievably gorgeous. Ragged cliffs, crashing waves, misty little coastal towns with historic churches. It's as if development stopped 40 or 50 years ago. And that is a feeling that is very, very hard to get in California, a very crowded and very popular state..
Why Doesn't California Build Big Dams Any More?
"Been talking about how most of our water comes from a system of dams and reservoirs set up to capture the states precipitation so one logical solution here is more dams right. Not so fast says jay lund a professor of civil and environmental engineering at uc davis story. I tell people is if you were the first engineer in california and you were going to build the first reservoir where would you put it. You had put it the cheapest place that gives you the most water. Where would you put the reservoir the next best place. We've done this fifteen hundred times. What do we have left. Expensive places that don't give you much water. He says with fifteen hundred dams in the state all the good damn spots are taken heck. Even a lot of the bad spots are taken but that doesn't mean that there aren't smart things we can do with our reservoirs as david romero takes it from here with four big ideas so the first big idea has to do with managing those fifteen hundred reservoirs differently. I learned how lake mendocino along the russian river. That's where i met. Nick mala savage in the middle of the mostly dry lake bed. He helps manage the lake for the us army corps of engineers in two thousand nineteen. The water was about forty feet over our heads. He says lake mendocino could go dry by the end of the summer mar lake levels here at lake. Mendocino are the lowest they've ever been for this time in the year even though this lake is nearly dry it's on the leading edge of science around reservoir management in the past. Water was let out of the reservoir whether or not storms were in the forecast. They wanted to make room for more water. They expected would come but because of climate change. Those storms are becoming less frequent malice. Savage is helping pilot a new approach at lake. Mendocino conserve wait until a major rainstorm is coming and then let water out of the reservoir. It's called forecast informed reservoir operations. We can sit on this water. We can continue to watch the forecast and then you see that big boomer of a storm conham then you can make the decision. Hey the sun's still shining. We need to put water into the river. Generate that airspace for the next storm. And we're good

Boy just turned one and we wanted to treat him for his birthday. We usually don't share human food with them unless he steals it but on his special day. That's funny we have him.

But but that's like besides that she they she doesn't really she doesn't she doesn't they. Both of them don't really go after my human food and like they'll be disinterested which to me it was my my my cats marrow's zip and buster there will go nuts over over human food. Zip was always trying to steal stuff as you'd still a steak right off your plate if she could. Wow so i will say that the thing that they like. That's that's closer human food but it's not really human food's ultimate cat treat is i'll give him a can of tuna sometimes and they'll love the cast on the tuna tuna tuna fish will work but besides that they love their fucking. They love their greenies. Which are these little snacks. They love their their greens. And they love. They love their temptations. They eat like junk food. And i need them to be around still there at least twenty i. I should get them like smalls for cats or whatever people use for for healthy food but they like like nine lives. They like like junk food. Fancy feast dry food. That's kind of a. I gotta with people are gonna yell at me but please do tell me. Tell me what fancy food you. They're very picky eaters. Just they have the things that they like and they just they. You know what they're like. My dad would that turkey sandwich. Wise they're not they're not like those fucking whiny writers. They just do their the their stuff and they're in the and they're happy with it all the time but it is kind of junk food. It's the routine. It sounds like. Yeah they're like they're like the doe boys and that they eat like the shitty junk food of of cat food no routine. He won't use food of his bowl. But then if you put it in your hand he's like well. This is different. I'll eat that out of your hand. If the trashes open he tries to get in. he's like. I'll eat literal garbage. But i won't eat my food out of a bowl. I think he just hates the routine. It's like this is boring. Yeah the they're unpredictable. Sometimes we'll be squawking for food and then they'll eat. It put a lot of the times. i'll put it out. They won't eat it and then they'll just eat it secretly later but but but tuna fish. That's it that's the only real. That's the goal tunafish. 'em our producer. Recently expanded your family with the addition of a pup zad boy like any Ever liked indulgent a human treats She kinda like mitch's cats. She's like very cautious about human food. She always if we give it to her. She takes it and she walks away with it and sniffs it. And if she doesn't want it she flicks it away with her tongue which is very horrible but she's like meter. She just likes plain chicken or steak. She really liked swordfish. Which was interesting swordfish. But that's pretty much it just like meat that's all. She really wants so tuna fish for cats. My old cats love tuna fish. So that sounds like a great tree to tree for.

"I'll be tall ash discussing this week. Shane mendocino farms. You could just call it twitches through early cookie monster crew. We're here with the cookie monster crew. We just put mendocino farms in the golden plate club and that means it's time for a segment. Why by the way we said this pre episode me and you are the blue crew. Were saying yes. The gummy sponsor for men who were suffering from erectile dysfunction. I'm always doing that shit. I know on stop taking the apfel crew. Join to yes. Hey i've got a set of food related songs and mitch and avi tomas guess which year they originally premiered. It's another addition of jingle all the way spelled w. h. e. y. as always these are combined by associate producer. The drop king rubber per singer. So here are here are and by the way mitch. The drop king includes the spirit of ted this bit of trivia because mitch's mentioned the segment name a few times now. The original name of the segment was jingle all the way spell w. e. i g. h. Sean distance suggests changing is a w. h. y. During dennis three episode and michael cassidy asked if that had been adopted a few episodes later during the burger king four episode. Nick agreed to the change in proclaimed that canon. So there we go. That's how he got there. God sucks and speaking of ken and here are the rules long and why. Whyy first whoever. Whoever guesses closest to the year without going over prices right still gets a point. And if you're exactly on the dot you get two points. That's the and marine rule. So are we clear where we're going to watch jingle we're going to listen to a jingle and we're gonna guess what year came out and do do we take turns. You just shout it out. Yes we'll take turns you'll each get a gas on each of the clues okay. I'm going to be bad at all right here. we go. Well you're up against mitch. So all right emma. Let's play the first one. Nobody hold well so a great little song. They're great little diddy. The the video feels like it was captured at maybe fifteen f. Ps wasn't the best quality but we can kind of get a sense of time and place. At least i think that's up to you. I'm wondering if i'll get better at these as we do them more. But i think i won't. I think these are like still hard to tell what arrow these are from there. Yeah they're they're they're tough to figure out Every time we give you the option of going. I right nick you can go. I only or is it a thing where we buzz in. What is we'll alternate but for this first one. Would you like to go first or second. That's it okay go first. why not. we're here all say great. Ninety-one i'm torn. It might ninety. But i want to try to go for that two points. I also have no idea it might be neither of those. But let's say ninety one ninety one so this is so this is. This is where. I'm going to tell you this. This is where this is where we're far apart on this. Okay i think. I think this is one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. I think this is one thousand nine hundred. Eighty okay okay. Eighty nine hundred eighty might be a little too soon. I actually think that it's but i don't wanna go over the rules. You can't go all right I think you might be right on this. I but but i do think eighty is in my head i was like could that be seventy s but i was like one thousand nine hundred eighty but in my mind i'm like is it. Like eighty three could be eighty three or eighty four. And then after that. I don't. I think that it's getting too late. But i think eighty two eighty four. But i'm going to go nine hundred eighty. Wow mitch. i know you didn't want to oversee overshoot it but amazingly you did nine thousand nine hundred. Seventy nine gergen's favorite year. The year my sister was born. I was gonna say seventy nine but faulk says even either of you get the point because you both went over you both. I think i tend to think things older and so i was trying to compensate but yeah we just like that the the rain and the bear video. Yes it's not up at zero peace. Let's hear the next year off and you're off for god's sake sorry mitch that's trash good taste good time all the great taste got it got. It got get going to just one place dot.

It's still a good place. It's it's very good. I had i had a. I had a bad situation with swanson. I won't say what it was. Well actually also. I'll say it but we'll bleep it.

Put us yes. I put this above bleep to bleep out restaurant. Because i actually think that restaurant is good too and i think that it's just another place that people look. That's a mistake mistakes happen. And i think it's a thing that you get to houston some of these places in your life. This place sucks. I don't wanna eat there that often. And it's just it's just because it's it's repetition wags it is the sort of familiarity breeds contempt as the me out faulk familiar. -ality breeds contempt. I said it.

You can't refuse four and a half forks. Wow works two tines very half four and a half. Yes four and a half. I think that i mean it. It doesn't get the perfect five.

Get the carved steak bag. Get some you know. Get some of that stuff back. Go go back to your your old recyclable. you're better for the pa- the better for the planet packaging but keep that top. Keep that top container thing with the with the little indent for the with a salad dressing but but it's almost a five four. I think it's great. I mean hell. It's almost on the right day.

"You might be sipping on that it. It reminded me that it was delicious and and also like as for hot salad dream. Let's that the other. The other side. I got was the spicy curry couscous. Which got today on my visit. And that's got that that one's great it's also like you know it's it's nice and refreshing and light of that if you get a small one of their sides. It's like just enough to to fill you up if you're having it with a with a sandwich but it's not like overwhelming. Sometimes you'll get like dehli ceremonies place and it's like so much that you just feel overstuffed or you've got some leftover. It's just a little dab basically it's like a little. You know a small little coasters worth of of salad. And that's about all you need with their with the portion sizes sandwiches. So i i like their sights quite a bit. Yup the those.

Another thing that uses like the mendel krispies in there But it's it's it's it's it's it's you can get vegan wogs. It's you can add chicken or you can get a vegan but it's it's a. It's like a vegetarian. So i think that they marketed as a vegetarian salad. But basically hold on. I'm looking i'm looking up the ingredients and kale romaine crunchies and then some shave cheese which you can admit if you wanna make vegan. Onions scraped tomatoes avocado. And a little. Lemon squeeze along with that caesar dressing. So not only. Did i not make a vegan but i also i added in Chicken breast so. I got it with chicken and you know it was really good. All their salads are just they make they make they make good salads. There they do. I i added i add. He's got some extra dressing on the side and then i got a pita. It comes with peter you can put you can put all the and i'm not a big guy and i almost went non-cable but i just got it the way i add chicken Now i gotta go. it sounds. It's a it's a salad. It is a good taste and salad. I love that little. Pita one hundred calories you can wrap your salad in there and make yourself a little sandwich with your salad. It's great i i really. I really enjoyed it. And then i also got a chocolate chip cookie and what the chocolate chip itself is also great. They're both of them. were good. They were both good cookies. Yeah no i everything i got there. I enjoy it. I think it's i think that if this was around the country i think it would be a good thing for the you know the is a good chain. It's good quality food and it seems like they do things. Well it seems like they source their food and the right way. It seems like they care about their environment. I don't know if that's the case. But it seems that way. And i think if people got this for lunch for free. I think they'd be thrilled to talk. And whiny babies does planet way. And i wanted california chicken camp they they. I will say that the also the workers at mendocino farmer universally like just like the seemed to go above and beyond like in terms of just making sure that you're getting your order right and just being super-duper friendly so that's the thing. I always appreciate about that place they have also. If you tip you drop a little cash tip that ring a bell. That's a lot of fun. Oh that's fun. I was thinking earlier when you guys when you when you when we all got the same thing. When you're when you're like i got that too. We should ring a we do some sound effects. You know that. I want more sound effects. Yeah let's create more work for emma so i'm already bleeping on eleven things. Can you also add in a little cowbell johnson or or or am okay said no just clip this right here and play when when when nick said they had the same thing. Just play this. Who.

"These were the classics. Like whatever i had from. There was not any of those things until this round. Yeah no the the not so fried in the in the prosciutto and chicken had been that we we used to get mendel all the time with a on on the birthday boys wags when we worked on the lot. Wow we get the first season of the birthday boys with bob. Who in the wanna say. Get well bob bob who who just had a small heart attack. But he's doing. He's doing well but i don't think god i know him too fun fact. He's he's like one of the nicest people that i've encountered in this industry. He's i always do an impression of bob on here. And i'm always like urge me bob but i love bob. And he's like a guy he's a he's a guy who i you know very close to a father figure in many ways You wanna you want them to you know yeah right you want them to think sandwich from the same spot every day. I mean bob probably would be. But but i got yeah. I got to see the old classics wise i got. I got those sandwiches. And they didn't disappoint. They were really good in avatar. Got myself a chocolate brownie. Cookie will just kind of the brownie version of it and it was great. I so i got this on our. Yeah no i loved it. I thought it was. I thought it was really fantastic. And i actually. I actually aided the next day i can. I save held up great. I also got myself some basil pesto shells they do so they do like small deli salads and those are good they they have another one. That's like like more on a red sauce more mendocino sort of deal Right I forget almond ra ra mesko shells. I think is what they're called. But i'm just going off the dome on that one but those are really good. But they're deli. Their delegates is good in that first order. I got a tie watermelon cucumber salad which is probably similar to that. You know the water the watermelon. But they're not trying to poke in your no. They're not trying to nike and it was really. It was a really tasty salad. It was it was it was it was really give it was. It's a fruit salad but it was it was it was really good at you. Get a little spicy with that tie flavor and then i also got a A spicy dijon potato salad which i didn't like as much but their salads. You can go up to the front counter when you're there they'll give you a little spoonful. Try which i don't know if they still do in the age of covert they'll usually get your little taste test. And and there's those deli salads are really good nick. What do you think. I agree and i will say this. We have so we have similar minds first off. Call us the cookie crew. Because i also got a chocolate brownie cookie already for fucking mind to be blown. Same damn cookie and let me tell you. It was good as hell i like. Could i have low expectations for our cookie from a sandwich shop. Usually it's like it's like jersey. Mike's is like the ceiling of how good these can get jersey. Mike's brownies are in the brownies. Cookies are great both of us but we ourselves the cookie crew. Yes we do. I thought we we we before the episode. We put out that. We're all wearing blue. We were the blue. That's right now we're the crew and also the cookie cookie models blue. That is just. I thought their cookies did not look good so i was really happy that they were good. They don't they. Don't look great in the picture. They look honestly if you show one of them next to a subway cookie. I'm they look the same but really wake much better so good. Oh wow okay why. People people are big fans of subway cookies. I even more than the sandwiches themselves. but yeah no the cookies had. I'll go over my one last order. 'cause i more stuff on my last order just yesterday but why i want to hear more of your cookie thoughts here cooking. The cookie was good. It was it was It was sweet and delicious and tasted fresh. Tasted fresh baked. I don't know if they make on site or not but it seem that way. I got to the salads as you. The thai watermelon and cucumber salad on my first visit. Andy spicy john potato salad here. My here here's my otake they rotate. What's in and out of their cold-case semi arbitrarily so like you mentioned. There's two kinds of pasta salad. And sometimes they'll be. There's a better one or not so good one. I think it's the same case with a potato salad. They also have a dill potato salad. That's not spicy. And i like spicy foods. I'm still of heat seeker but the dope potato salad that they have sometimes is better flavor wise. It's like a better a better potato salad overall than the spicy. John south over for that one. That's available but i agree with you. The watermelon and cucumber salad was good. It would outperform expectations lot of acid to it. A little bit of jalapeno. In there. Which i think really helped them. It was really nice. It was it was refreshing and spicy and delicious. Kind of had the effect of like a good like a good. What the what's the word. I'm looking for that fucking spanish shit. The cold spanish won the spanish sue. Spanish the fought show because spa. Yes yes yeah right earn madrid..

"That's that's that's that this. This is one of their big sandwiches. When this place. I started the save drake's farm the menu. The menu got bigger and bigger. Obviously as time as time went on but saved drake's farm and chicken the chicken and prosciutto sandwich and then this sandwich chicken. I still think that those are kind of the big ones. The chicken prosciutto salad is up there too in the in in but these are these are the those are the big sandwiches the zero and the not. So it's it's it's good. They're good. I'll have it not rolled. It is good. I got one. I got one of one of a few sandwiches. That i got. But i haven't had it in a long time and i was wondering if things have changed because i loved that. Stay cobb and the definitely have changed the steak like they actually used to give you strips and now it's now it's basically like sliced steak very thin sliced steak now which which i don't know maybe he's just for that restaurant you know like it's the sort of thing of this is just easier to pack in in in in refrigerator and keep on hand longer or something like that but it used to be actually chunks of steak and the chicken is kind of the same thing where it's just like a thinly sliced chicken almost not deli style. But it's and. I think that that's always the way the chicken always was. But i hadn't had it in a long time. And i think it is really great and i wondered if it had changed at all they basically like put like little crispy kind of little crispy rice things. And they're gonna give it to give it the feel of endo's krispies. But i don't know what that means me neither and i want to know poplars future futurama different than the than the rice crispy. Rice in the salad. It was like a different crunch than that. But i know what you're saying about the slicing. Because i had like a bite and it was so good and i was like. Is it fried chicken. It's not quite a ticking. What does that mean. And then i had a little bit of like the chicken by itself and it's sort of on remarkable but it's the bite the bite together so good yes. I guess it's it's like a it's like a way to make. It seem like fried chicken. The of it is but without without the you know the caloric bomb of it actually. Being a fried chicken. It's like a roasted chicken breasts with those those aforementioned krispies and and i think everything. Here's here's the deal with. Manda was like all the vegetables like kind of slaw combination on top of the chicken. Sandwich is really good. I think if you're going here to get like an actual fried chicken sandwich. They actually do have one. Which got as well here. how it compares. But but i don't think this is the type of place you go for anything like that. In fact as far as like hot food goes here it is kind of a in. I've eaten at the restaurant plenty of times. I did this time. Get it delivered each time. look we're delta's back delta delta here not back safe and so you got to be safe. And i don't want i didn't want to go and eat in the restaurant but it's never place where you're gonna get like. Oh that's like a nice hot sandwich. I feel like like for some of the grilled sandwiches the reuben wives. I know that you just gave them there. Well the the ruben are. You're not gonna get an get hot sandwich. i don't know the the ruben is. The ruben is the the. I feel like what i was gonna say. The ruben the grill. The grill sandwiches couches. Not so fried chicken. Sandwich isn't like a hot like it's not the chicken meat isn't like hot. You know what. I mean kind of like room temperature too warm. It's not it's not super hot anyways regardless tasted to me anyway so good without the hot component was like no more impressive. Yeah i just assumed that's the delivery thing and may but it's still was so good and maybe it wouldn't have been even in in the store and your asteroid but by the time it got to me it was just like this is so good get. It's a it's a. it's a great sandwich it makes. It makes sense that they that that this is one of de their little stars. I feel like. I have sandwiches earlier at a not chain that same day that we're very pricey and i preferred all of these I had i split to with somebody. So i had two other ones in like silverlake spot that actually heard somebody else mention on your podcast and it was good but i thought that this was better. I mean the only thing that i would maybe want is like a little bit more of the pickled onion. I thought that was a very nice tang and there was very little bit but i love. I love dipping. And i felt like it didn't even need. I got the barbecue sauce in the end and doesn't even need it what what was. What was the restaurant. You can will bleep it. We'll believe that also who's who did you hear it from. We'll bleep that to that as well. This is a big bleep. Episode is getting the and had some sandwiches and i was not that impressed. Wow.

"Pm like thinking ahead. I'm going to be when i'm hungry. Food will be here and then at like seven fifteen. It's like your order has been canceled three different times and sold and then i ordered directly from you can do it through their website and that was the time it worked on the fourth. Try also great. When i told him year. What restaurant we were doing. I said mendocino farms. And i feel like i have to myself because i thought that that's what it was and you said you pull in a veto exactly. I was exactly what happened. So i guess we're all even i think about it every time mcdonagh mendocino. That's what i want to say so even from there before when you were talking about the steak cobb. I was like i did. Have that. remember doing a salad there with steak and liking it. But i feel like it's been very like fifty fifty. I've gotten food there and kind of liked it or not. And this time i was like i'm gonna look yelp and see what people recommend like. I did such a great order. I was very pleased with. Wow wow good mendocino. Sounds like a fucking italian mobster. Sounds like italian food place. It's a red sauce of place. I would love. I would watch a movie with a character and mendocino is a mark to hear it. Why are you can write it after after after you finish ghost to also at a i'll go from my least favourite up i got the ruben which has vegetarian which wanna say it is like a real ruben. But i don't really remember a real. Ruben tastes like so. I'm not sure but the rye bread was good This is going to sound grows but wet enough. I always want it to be like have like mayo and like just be wet enough is there. Is there a fake thousand islands on a fake. A megan is there a vegan. Thousand islands ingredients here. Yeah yet. I got this as well. Mrs goldfarb's unreal ruben. Plant based corn beef from unreal delhi. So it's not impossible it's unreal. Which is a different brand. Have already cheese apple and roots law homemade bread. Which is the right. That was mentioned butter. Pickles and a smokey thousand island. I gotta say i thought you. I thought you said fardie cheese and it was very strange sounding bardy cheese correct artie. Yeah to be reading it was it was. I thought very good and it was my least favorite so i feel like that speaks to get everything else was then just a quick interjection nick. Nick going back going back to go zoo can you. Can you write in a scene. Where leo goes down on the ghost bear at one point. Yeah l. like reverse ghostbusters or today. Have you seen that any sort of like bestiality in a mainstream movie. I can't think of yet. i'm looking what what's his name. Why am i. Blanking can see his face. So clearly. Bulk gold tweet. Did that one movie where it's like. I think it's a postscript of like a girl who blew a dog in college and it's like an afterthought math of that to your lord yeah i found one. Okay now yes yes. It's been years so i don't remember. We both give it five stars letterbox. I'll be checking checking off and then the rest of these were just like i thought so so good well. Okay i got. I'm really into cookies. And i wanted to get the classic chocolate chip but they were out. So i got like a brownie cookie and i. I didn't think either them look that good but this was very good. It was like the nice mix of like the brownie and the cookie without the brownie. Being overpowering or too sweet it was better than it looked very happy with the cookie. And then i got the pokey style watermelon salad. Wow yeah it was so good also their packaging cool. Because i feel like usually they do when you get a salad. It's like they just like shoved a little dressing in there and then you have to kind of fish it out and have a picture. I can send you guys but they have like. The lid of the salad has a little dent in it. That the dressing yet. This in there are so cool. Wouldn't i said yes. Great that it is one point did have. I'm sure that you can recycled plastics. But i'm sure that you can but look the recycle situation. I think in l. a. it's it's sort of everything that has the five recycle you is actually just gets tossed. There's sad shitload of the recycling. But they used to do a thing where like half. The container lid was plastic and the bottom was was Was whatever was Hardboard or something. I car yes. I'm sort of cards or whatever. Yeah but now a plastic. But i will say the invention of the little divet for the salad dressing is huge. Because one hundred one you'll nap they'll never forget your dressing which is a huge and i usually order. I usually try to like extra wrestling with a place like this. Just because they're they're deep salads. It's kind of like a tall bowl of salad in once you get down. If you fuck up you can have made like made a mistake. And you won't have any salad dressing in there. I don't like this. I don't like to shake up my my salads. Either it doesn't work only way. It's the only way to do it here like because like you were saying. There's so much depth to that bowl. It's it's a it's a it's a cavern and so there's no way to distribute to the bottom unless you get it unless you shake it up unless you turn that thing completely upside down i was able get full coverage then i feel like the ratio of the dressing. Isn't it's too light if you shake it up like that. It doesn't work as well. I don't know. And i like to like fork dressing onto the salad in that works. That's that that can work as well. I i kind of do it as i go. I lay her as i go and then and sometimes that's why i get. Get an excellent but that that that watermelon poke salad blue. Take an extremely interesting salad. I was fascinated by wow it. Didn't there's no fishing right. It is just watermelon okay and gave a mere sum and he didn't know that it wasn't pokey wow could not tell. It was a little too spicy for him So i think if you don't like spice you can get the comes with saracho mayo and i think if you just do that on the side then you're not dealing with spiciness But it was so good. And i think maybe part of i haven't liked it as much in the past as i was like. Maybe i've gotten it with like a very health conscious oriented trying to get stuff that's good for me whereas now i'm just gonna see what's delicious and yet i think there's enough in there. That's good for you because it has watermelon cucumbers pickled dicon and carrots now. i'm listing. The ingredients avocado scallions cilantro. kale slaw carrots. Bean sprouts spinach. So all that really good stuff and also has like crispy rice and the saracho mayo and a ginger ponzi dressing and black sesame seeds. So i guess none of that is really that unhealthy maybe just the crispy rice. It was so good. I had some like leftover the next day. Still good into it And then the number one was the not quite fried chicken. Wow i love salad or sandwich salad. Which the sandwich. But now i want to try it as a salad. Because i saw they.

"Beat us to the punch but is such a cute bear. I feel like i would die getting mauled by a bear. Because i'd be like oh my god looking i would want to. They have some dog like qualities to all right. It's all bear. Bear maulings the way to go over shark attack. I think i've also never signed seaman. Which might help. That's that's actually when in that scene where he's like. You must never listen to this. That's actually the dope boys pilot. There's a famous scene at the end. Where verner hertzog is like listening to audio of this man. This man's death at the hands of a bear and he at the positive a bear rather and he is like saying that like he's like he's listening to clip. You don't hear it and the person like the person he's talking to doesn't hear these basically saying like you must never listen to this a horrible this like it's like it's like the worst piece of audio he's ever heard and you guys you script. No no i would say that. That's actually the boys pile you. It's great when you have to explain a joke to somebody not feeling. It means we did our jobs. Yeah it's a good quality joke it actually is. I hadn't i didn't know the famous but now it's kind of it's me. It's it's a mean it's now the so we're talking mendocino farms. Avi tell. i'm curious. Do you have a go-to mendham mendham mendham. I feel like so for short mendocino farms known as men. Do you go to mendel order because it is such a you know i. I'm not sure how aware people are outside of california. It's in texas now But especially in the l. a. area. It is like such a go to. I feel like any office job. I've ever had in the entertainment industry or not has involved getting lunch from mendocino forms. So that's a long road for to ask. Do you have like a go to order or is this a place. You go with any regularity. Not at all i have. I had had two houses. One is one and got like an okay sandwich once but the place smelled really weird and then the others been exactly what you said onset. But it's been more like a platter. So i'm not ordering spotting it's sort of just like here's sandwiches for everyone and like big salads. Yeah they do a lot of catering. Apparently and i was researching. Apparently that's why they don't offer breakfast is because they're so busy in the early hours prepping all the catering orders for the day that they just don't have any bad with for for For breakfast orders but michi same question mendocino farms. I'm not sure if this is a regular spot for you. But i know you've had a number of occasions. Do you have a go-to order. Well yes i do. I actually get mendel quite a bit. And here's my thought is that meno is one of those restaurants that it's the baby writers in the baby in the baby industry. People get mad at mando because they get it all the time. It's just a place like they get all the time. I hate meadow. We're anywhere in the world if my dad when he worked for the t. Nba boston if they gave him mendel. Every day he'd be he'd be happy he'd be fine. My dad used to walk and get again. And i think of it. He'd go and walk and get a turkey sandwich every day. That's regard a turkey sandwich every day. I don't know how the fuck you did it. Fucking crazy person but wait. Where do you have a spot or did he know he does that. A local spot that he went and walked and got a turkey sandwich with like this icy mustard. Why can't you do your sorry. I there was a pause in my and then it wasn't a real pause. This is the internet. And i'm rent. Were you asking if all my god. She's hanging herself. No no don't do it with her cord from her headphones. While which would we surprising for us that that's the i. Oh boys on side almost reason enough to do it right. It's like getting mauled by bear. Sorta deal memorable death asking if why because as a turkey sandwich spot or like. He has a goto there. But you actually didn't say at. Yeah so i. I do have some go to's but i also don't care about why go nuclear but but i hear you foot. I'm just saying the world. The entertainment world is spoiled. Because i was always down fernando. Because i'm like i can get different stuff. I can get a salad and a. I'm okay doing it over and over and over again. I don't care sure. I want to mix it up occasionally. Don't get me wrong. But i feel like it's sort of like in the entertainment world if you get mendel like once a month there's still people being like we get this once a month and i don't like in mando is good is a high. It's a good quality place. I think that the first time i got is when it was from kowalczyk when he lived at at at at palmerston why he brought home a mangles. I think that was his dinner. He had he had he had set off a mouse trap and get caught so he brought that back and then for me. He gave me the south. I think it was the same. Drake's farm is that the one that has like goat cheese now shaved drake's for them because they successfully saved the form. Oh that's amazing. But he brought back to save drake when he was working downtown in the same studio where madman was but there was a mendel. I think that was like maybe the first mendel was downtown. I'm not sure.

"Substitutes. Do you like any of them ever tried any. You know it's funny. It's funny because when i was when i was in college was when i was at ithaca there was a kosher kitchen and i remember like i was like oh this stuff looks good. I was grabbing. It and i went to the my table. And someone's like you know. That's like kosher food for people who co-chaired. I was like oh i had no idea i i. I went up to that table. Probably with like like beef. A beef milk smoothie classic flavor described him a softball. I actually touch on this in antisocial distance. But i grew up the kind of religious where we didn't even have multiples on passover because it was so strict it was like if the mozzammel gets wet. There's a small chance that it might rise and then it's actually not kosher per passover for pesach. I like those a lot. I was having stomach distress. Nikki we've talked. We've covered it. We won't get into it more. But the last couple of the last almost two weeks and i went. I was multiple crazy. Yeah yeah so. Cantor's i did and i did. A green blasts those multiple from both them. Now i've got a question for you. This is famous. Delis in la. Yeah i i got a question. Why you're gonna wanna weigh in here to and i asked my my. I asked the delhi boys my two closest jewish friends in in la. There's a lot of layers so that they're two great guys as it sounds like both of them. But i said when you get a mozzarell- soup what exactly is in the soup. Because cantors and green blacks had very different versions. Green blasts had chicken in there a lot going on in the green glass one there was like an honestly turns out not as good for me because because of the way my son wasn't there was like onions and celery and chicken and carrots in the green one. I believe and then the cantor's one just straight up chicken broth with the mott's ball and if you want chicken you gotta add on if you want to add on and so i started going towards the cantor's while i'm just because i couldn't believe i did the green blocks a fucked me up bad kind of early on because at chicken and stuff in it and then i moved to the cantor's one and then i started to add rice to it. But what do you. What is the classic matsu ball soup. That's avatar. That's for you. And for why i like if you got lots of soup at a deli. What you expect to get in there. It's a great question. And i feel like on the surface. I'm very qualified to answer it. But then when you dig deeper. It's like no i didn't even didn't even i didn't even have that growing up so shit under no. That's like the stereotypical jewish food. I think i would count with carrots with chicken or without the lemus dancer but both are classic because the broth has to be like have carrots celery chicken so then it's sort of just like putting catch up on a burger or not right. You know okay all right. That's fair for me. i want. I want one lots of ball and then a big bowl of room temperature water. No chicken broth now. One of the worst stomach aches. I ever got was after green black. So i feel you on that healy. Yeah crippling stomach pain. Was it super related. It wasn't it. Was i think a corned beef sandwich which eylau there's the they have they they have a great corn. They have a great corby of grapes. Rummy tae drainage kanter's is i mean i love kanter's too just because it's it's kind of like kitschy or i guess it's like or i don't even know if that's the right word for it's just like it's all yeah old school. La kind of like yeah kinda frozen in time. It's it's right next to a an undeniably kitschy bar that it has a kind of his assist establishment the room and then and it's they got all the classics and they're open twenty four hours. I mean that's kinda what that's one of those kinds of places. I feel like it is like a time. Capsule like you said it's just frozen I remember when i first moved here. Someone was like. I'll take you to a kosher deli and there's nothing kosher about cantors which i think is very funny. I thought it was. Yeah not at all how I remember i. I went to cantor's like with my with my justin kylie. Who's been on the show. I who who in the dothan play guitar is great. That's right one of my best friends forever. He was out here and we went. We went to cantor's that's your. That's your best. Gentile friends of los angeles and andy. Dick will kick got up on stage in the kids room. I remember that and he starts singing and going crazy. she's also a very common. La story yeah. Yeah that'll happen to like burger king. I think i think i like both of them. I mean there's there's like what is this. Look we're getting deli boys territory. They're gonna be pissed off and they're gonna come for us. They're not making episodes anymore. But i do want to i. We could talk about food all day. But but mitch. You brought up something before the record. And i and i do think this is. This is non food related. And i think this is a good topic to dig into Which is you have. You both have letterbox to counts. And apparently you're seeing ida. I'd on some things can't wait to hear so abby tell. This isn't gonna help you. Because for me like i warned you beforehand. No one likes my movie opinions. That people just get mad at me. I like so very lightly criticized black widow. The other day i was just like it was kind of boring. That's all i said them. People were like oh. He had on my mad at me again for for literally.

Deep Valley Red Blend 2018
"Day. From. Sheep flying, find it Ascom again. Today we have. Five ninety nine red blend from trader Joe's The teat. Surround Low Sarah. It goes by the name of. Deep Valley Red Wine Blend Mendocino twenty eight teams. Normally Five ninety nine red wine kinda scares me a little bit because. You expect a few things out of red wine some oak aging some. Just some general aging. There is no budget applied ninety wine and a white wine. A little bit different like a Soviet block, a young savvy blockers young. They just make it. Right -Chusetts fresh. Lines good there. It doesn't that doesn't need to cost a lot of money. Learn, you need to do a little bit too and so it's always a little bit scary but I think they spied it's actually a food. Wise. I think it does better. With burgers or like a steak burrito does. On its own and I'm fine with it not the most malicious wine ever taste taste fine. But it's you know it's pretty pretty good. It's made by one of the oldest wineries in Mendocino. If you ever want to know who makes these winds for trader Joe's or any other Any other store where they don't really tell you what's what? Trademark. Registry. Website you get in there within our. Trademark lackadaisical it has come up. But. That doesn't mean that's a one that winery comes up would ever make on their own these custom crush people trader Joe's goes down and says, I want a wine like this at this price. They think, yeah. Okay. We can do that but it might not be a wine that they would ever do on their own. So don't read too much into who makes other than if they make good quality wine. They're probably not skipping on the quality that. They held back. And that's that and this is. It's a good ninety, nine Tuesday night. Pizza, burgers. Fine for them is this really well. You Know Harry. You go in and out Burger, we don't have it ended up Burger Chicago. It picked this would go great with that. There's another thing another observation about trader Joe's wines, and here's a five, ninety, nine wine from a single Aba. Under ten dollars. Californian the label which means that the grapes come from all over. It comes from the North Coast Central. Coast Central Valley. and. That's usually because to make wine cheap you gotta have. A lot of it. You gotTa make. Five hundred thousand bottles. And these big wine corporations do that they'll have holdings everywhere and you know they own vineyards contractors everywhere. So to make the most of their money and utilize scrapes pick from all over but trader, Joe's isn't like. They, go to a single ABA. And you don't know out of this is a single vineyard wine but not that, and there are a lot of vineyards in. In the Mendocino but. You know usually when these cheaper the winds are the simpler things is way to happens. You know they're not be off. You've got to bring in grapes from twenty seven different. Vineyards that might happen but you gotta figure cheaper just to grab one or two. So. To storebrand. You get a much more exclusive line for cheaper price than you do in a retail line. But you don't really know what you're getting basically. You're taking a chance but you get these single ABA wines and he don't know who's making what where, when all the time. But. If you go the trademark website, find out who's doing at Subic meals. Usually go because a lot of times these people. Make. These winds for trader. Joe's whatever their own brand self, their thirty five forty dollars. Make wines I mean it's. Just happen to have some extra great somewhere getting their hands on something. And you know trader Joe's better for. So. There you go. You got the deep sally you red wine blend from. Five, ninety, nine crazy price. There is some. You know it's It's a twenty eight. So it's fairly young for Redwan. Super Young read one.

Small Steps Towards Productivity at Home with Sid Garza-Hillman
"Everyone welcome to radio. This is Doug Hey and today I'm joined by my good good buddy who is so nice to talk to you sit Garza Helmet said welcome back to the podcast. Doug Nice to be here and thank you for having me on. It. was that was that was that to professional? No wonder. Out He's like, I don't want to be around that kind of anyway. Thank you so much for for for serious is always good to talk to you. Yeah same to you and. Say That anyone who is a longtime listener of the pod or follower up athlete knows exactly who you are. But you know who is said Garza Hohmann who who are you, and why should people pay any attention to what you have to say? Why don't know about the second question but the first question is that I'm. Well. Nutritionists running coach Author of two books and another one that I just finished. It's not out yet. PODCAST Vlogger I direct an ultra marathon. And I run a wellness center at at the Stanford in a nutritionist there and. father husband. That's that pretty much sums it all up. Yeah. You know our other things. That's a lot I do a lot of stuff which is i. think partly of what we're GonNa talk about today, but we'll see where that goes. Yeah I I was so disappointed in this year, we also come back out for the race would have been my. Third Time coming for the senior Costa Fifty K. which is. Without a doubt, my favorite ultra-marathon off there ever is Martin was or will be. I. Guess I can't say that definitively about I, I, can I mean there will never be a better race video It's such a cool race rents along the coast of the Mendocino coast like Northern California cliffs just absolutely stunningly beautiful and then through the redwoods and along this big river out of there, it's such a cool that and. But of course, like everything else it was canceled this year and I was sorry to Miss Miss that option is here. Yeah, I was I was a late hold out like we were getting the news about you know. Groups of fifty sounds like okay. I can do that because all space my runners out Mr groups of twenty five probably can do that. You know, and then finally it was a group of ten and I was like okay and I had to pull the plug and it was really. I took it way harder than thought it would take it. I was very bombed Tanaka the race and. It's come for some reason. The last couple of weeks I think I'm trying to nail down next year's date and everybody who signed up to have a free. You know they have a free entry into next. You basically postponed the race a year essentially, but I'm like drinking coffee out of my Mendocino Coast Fifty K. last few days I've been wearing the hat like. Just around surrounding myself with all things Mendocino. Miss you so much. You know it's It's such a fun. It's like the it's such a thing I look forward to every year and to not have it this year amongst every amidst everything else was just really a bummer. Yeah what what do you think was the most? Disappointing part about if you just about the about the race by cancelling. Yeah. Just because I love the it's such as you know for anybody who's run it they know but I keep the number on purpose. You know have quite a big wait list actually but I, keep the number very tight at one hundred fifty. Because it's really intimate fun and it's become would have been in its fifth year, but there's a lot of returners. So it becomes this thing where it's almost familial. You out there there's traditions that are being built now around the race 'cause it's now it's not in its first year now in its would have been in its fifth and so it's it's a new race but you can sort of see the establishment of traditions in and just seeing people again for the you know that one time per year and it's just it's just I greet everybody when they come. Across the finish line because I keep the numbers manageable and it's just it's just this fun. Fully positive no negative day and even people who drop I've never had a negative person. They always come back and I go I. Miss a stupid thing. You know they get a beer and they walk over to the beach you know like it just so it's all good and I've knock on Wood I've never had. A bad experience around. So it's just it's just a fun thing for me to do. It is a good addition to altering community. Thank you for putting that on. Yeah, my pleasure. All. Right. So we'RE NOT GONNA be talking about the racer. We're not even going to be talking about today we're talking about a productivity and kind of staying focused in the age of that I. Know I have I've worked from home for a long time and you've partially worked from home for a while and so I'm used to this whole working from home thing. But I'm hearing increasingly more from people who from friends and family and stuff who are getting growing increasingly frustrated with the work from home experience and. They're having they're having trouble with productivity. You're having focused missing You know their friends at work and their colleagues and and so even though we're wet like five months into this whole thing and most people are still working from home. We. Thought it'd be good to talk about productivity and to talk about. You know just kind of waste to stay focused and and be efficient but we're doing it in the framework of small steps because you're like the small stuff guy, you might be the og small sips guy. I don't know what are small steps. I'm pretty I'm pretty Oh, Jeez most. Well, my small steps are from most other small steps. So I'm there are people out there talking about micro steps, break everything into two minutes my specific approaches to train people how to set their own well. I'll put this way a small step for me as an is the mindset it's what you view something as small step. So it's not a fixed amount of time in the world. It's just for you if it's a small

Low Snowpack In California Mountains May Mean More Wildfires This Summer
"This month is shaping up to be one of the driest February's in California's history state. Water officials said today that snow pack across the Sierra Nevada is measuring less than half of. What's normal for this time of year? That matters to skiers and snowboarders but more critically sunny skies in the winter could mean more wildfires. Come summer and fall from member station K. Q. E. D. in San Francisco. Peter Cooney reports armed with aluminum survey polls and electric sensors hydrologist in California flocked to the Sierra Nevada. Each winter to measure snowpack. That's because about a third of the state's annual water supply for drinking and agriculture gets stored as snow than when the south starts to melt in the late spring early summer. That water will hopefully slowly meltoff and replenish the water. That is Held IN OUR RESERVOIRS. Chris. Orrick is with the California Department of Water Resources. He says the dry winter is in stark contrast to last year there was probably one of the wettest. February's we've ever had some areas in the Sarah accumulated up to fifty feet of snow whereas this year in the majority of the Central Valley Northern California. We had a little to no measurable Precipitation Silver Lining Or. It says is that the state's reservoirs still have plenty of water. Thanks to all the snow and rain from last year while officials aren't ready to declare a drought a dry winter can signal an early start to California's wildfire season which has devastated parts of the state in recent years. The massive car fire Mendocino complex the atlas tubs fires campfire is now the most destructive fire in state history given two fires that are close enough to one another that essentially is one incident and this fire is a monster it is the low snowpack is an important insurance policy to protect against wildfire says. Jonah bots glue. He's a climatologist with the University of California merced set so that snow melts provides a gradual source of moisture keeping those fuels in our forces areas Wet later into the spring and early summer so when we don't have the snowpack in place when we have a subpar snowpack. Those fuels are allowed to green up and actually dry out earlier in the year and that says about to glue sets the stage for an early start to fire season so California's certainly has seen longer fire seasons lasting both later in the fall and starting early in the spring and unfortunately the lack of precipitation across the state. We've basically struck out during the two wettest months of the year. A spokesman for CAL. Fire the agency responsible for fire. Prevention in California says that the current dry windy conditions have already contributed to more wildfires than usual this winter but fire officials and water managers point out that California's wet season isn't over yet. They're hoping for a repeat of twenty eighteen when a series of March storms. Replenish the snowpack in time for the spring runoff

A Deep Dive Into Kelp Killers
"This week. I traveled to California's Mendocino county to scuba dive with local. Oh abalone fishermen Jank Lincoln's and Mike Escrow from the California Ocean Protection Council to get a firsthand look the impact that warmer waters lessee the stars and a massive increase in Purple Sia jains a having on everything from Kelp to abalone. I meet up with Mike Escrow. Who's is the marine ecosystems program manager the Ocean Protection Council Luckily for me. Mike's also a dive Mazda a former C. ground fellow and and hold a master's degree from cal State Monterey Bay in Marine protected areas might where are right now. We're here at Pebble beach on the North Coast and Sonoma's county and we're going to go out and try to see some abalone but probably gonNA see a lot of very much kelp unfortunately okay so in front of us. We have this yellow bag and it's got a lot of equipment that quite remember what I'm GonNa do is so well we got right. Here is as we have your scuba tanks so all your errors in here we got your. CD that stands for buoyancy compensation device and so that's going to help you adjust buoyancy underwater as you get a little deeper grier. GonNa add some areas. You get a little shallower. You're gonNA that Samaria out. We got regulator here which we're going to hook up to the tank so that you can breathe underwater. That's important all your rubber. All your neoprene so so that's GonNa keep you nice and toasty in that water which is probably about between fifty and fifty five degrees right now so you'll be glad you have that wetsuit in that best and it sounds like you know what you're doing which which has got because I'm glad I'm here. I hope I know what I'm doing. I've been now instructor for a few years now. So what do we do next should be putting your B. C. D. on your tank so I'm going to show you how you do that. This big strap goes around. How much do we have in this tank so this is this is a steel eighty so so you got eighty cubic feet of air in here dependent on your air consumption. That's probably anywhere between thirty five fifty five minutes air but we'll be checking in judge others air supply as we go through the coal now go ahead and turn it on you can hear it pressure as and we'll test it so most important thing second-stage's. That's purge valves. If you ever get any water you can just press that right. They'RE GONNA go ahead and take a breath. Make sure it's working compressed Air Nice. This is your alternate second-stage right here so that that's just the backup so take breath. This make sure it's working right. I love that first breath of pressure as their morning warning. This is an important piece right here. Here's your console all the data. This is all the data exactly this and piece of data right there. This is how much air you have in your tank and then he got a compass sounds. Jack's going to be doing most of our navigation today but if you want I want you can play around with the compass a little bit and help you navigate under water. We're not going down deep enough or stand down long enough to worry about kind of decompression but it's going to have so that's it. I feel good all right. I feel like I know what I'm doing now. So do we get changed now. I think it's GONNA be easiest to get changed now. Okay so we got booties. They probably go on last well. Maybe the hat goes on last-second. Say here's your suit so this is about seven or eight millimeter state is gonNA keep yeah yeah okay so go ahead and get that on once. You're all suited up. I'm going to do the same okay regret pefect before I go ensued up. I asked Jiang Lincoln's and local resident who's led the campaign to bring attention to abalone collapse and who will be leading today's dive to explain the device is now calibrating okay so I work with reef check which is a volunteer data collecting organization in California and I collect abalone Loni data for them. I measure the sizes of Abalone what I'm showing you. Here are some special calipers designed by Josh Russo who is also also a reef check diver specifically for measuring Abalone so that you can do it quickly underwater and it uses a plastic paper deeper and punches so you punch the paper on this zero location then as you measure abalone you punch and then when you're finished you can take the little piece of plastic paper out and measure all the size of the abalone is very fast very efficient and we can get up to one hundred fifty punches and one tank of air which is about half of what you need and a site to build evaluated super low tech yeah the little holes there yeah so from the histogram of size you can determine the size at maturity and you can determine the spawning potential ratio which is very important important in an abalone fishery okay so now for the moment truth. I have to actually get to freezing border. Okay this moment. I'm actually pretty nervous. I remember the last time I went scuba diving looking at the world fifty feet above my head and realizing that there was actually no way that I could make it out without at and unlike like the Caribbean and the border here murky and freezing okay now. I'm working with from the beach into the ocean. Okay I just was attempting to go down to the ocean floor but it's taking me a while to sort out the the right buoyancy level for this suit and God luckily I had gloves on because we were literally crawling along the ocean floor with our hands and the Purple Patch as far as I can see which admittedly was only about five feet but they I mean they were everywhere we stay down for about twenty minutes being moved around by very strong tidal surges and a lot of the time I talked just completely claustrophobic and directionless took a lot of effort to keep president and not give into fear it also took a while for my Easter just to the pressure which at first was just the pain was so intense and just crazy to painful bear then like magic. It disappeared getting out of the water. I'm filled with just so many emotions excitement to be exiting a very foreign weld Tara at the C. Hitch an infestation gratitude for Mike keeping me safe and the complete Adrenalin high just from being on this adventure then unfortunately we just starting to cough up some blood which I find out later was normal but at the time was just shocking okay mic that that was more of adventure than house quite intense coming in the water. Thank you for being such a good guide lead. Yeah you got it man. Absolutely as a challenging day we had limited visibility at say probably no more than five feet at any given time so pretty green down there and a lot of a lot of water movement so we were. We were blown back and forth pretty pretty good but with us fun it was. I just thought I was I mean I know I am cramp but like I just suddenly be floating floating back and I'm like Mike so when you see where we came out of the warden and you're like there's a lot of said made me feel a teeny bit. That's definitely the surgeon. I've experienced but I'm not a north coast either. I'm a I'm a Monterey diver so it gets it gets way more narrowly up here. So I mean to me is far as the I could see that were purple see the actions I mean it was he couldn't see that but as far as you could see they were everywhere yeah. There were a lot of them down. There and I think the craziest thing for me was just seeing how how how much they'd grazed. I mean they'd you know urgency grazers. They eat plants. They eat algae and they'd grazed everything down to bare rock. So's is pretty much urgency. As far as the I could see I mean I've never heard of them. Described as grazes yeah that's a technical term yeah but they're there and so the sea stars used to eat them mm-hmm and then they will wiped out. Yes exactly so so what happened is the sea stars are one of the major urging predators specially a couple of big species so sunflower stars which are picnic. Odia and giant giant spine stars which are species of highs astor. Those guys got hit really hard by sea star. Wasting disease started in twenty thirteen thirteen twenty fourteen really wipe those guys out and so without those natural predators to keep him in check. The purple urging just exploded so quickly though I mean like the timeframe Yo Tokiwa Matt is just kind of like often I think about climate changes slowly moving in like this has happened quick. Yeah I mean this is this is pretty much instantaneous. Ania on a on an ecological scale which is really
