With 421 stations surveyed, we now stand at 800 stations remaining to be surveyed. The rate of surveying slowed during the month of September, which is to be expected as people end summer vacations, start school, and other end of summer activities. I expect we’ll see it pick up in the weeks ahead as people get back to new routines.
One notable: we are down to the final seven stations from California. I recently did Weaverville and Orleans, but have not written them up yet. That leaves Blythe, Brawley, Cedarville, Death Valley, Fresno, Livermore, Needles, San Luis Obispo, and Tejon Rancho. I’m particularly interested in Tejon Rancho since it is a benchmark station that has been unchanged virtually since its beginning. Alas, it’s on private property, and they don’t seem interested in providing access. So if anyone has an “in” with the Tejon Ranch company, please let me know.
If you are considering doing a station survey, please check the USHCN masterlist at www.surfacestations.org to see what is available.
