Oh and by the way, Barry, Kensit Plumbing never did return our calls.
Thanks for the tip to Miramar Plumbing. They said up front they couldn't handle our radiant floor heating work, but referred us to Simms Plumbing out of Pescadero 650 879 0739. Elias from Simms came out and diagnosed issue after issue from the previous plumber's work within 30 minutes. He fixed a water hammer issue right away, and he and the owner, Steve Simms, the following day, came out and diagnosed everything else. They saved us tons of money -- BAPH (see prior post) had tried to tell us we needed…
Tim Kensit was also recommended to us by another source. Sadly, he does not return phone calls. We have left him two messages over two weeks. I guess he doesn't need any new business.
Stay from Bay Area Plumbing and Heating run by Lance Eastman out of San Carlos. He left our water heater and radiant floor heating plumbing in worse shape than he found it.
Still looking for a good plumber that has the specialty skills for radiant floors, preferably local.
I agree with your comments -- but can you point me to a source that backs up what these pilots are doing is illegal? I agree that it should be -- but from what I've seen so far it looks like the noise abatement guidelines are just that -- and voluntary.
Thanks for the link (although I had to cut and paste it -- the direct link from this page fails). I notice that the referenced noise abatement procedures are "voluntary." Why is that? I certainly see few planes observing any of those procedures. We're outside any of the "extremely noise sensitive areas" (as is Montara) -- but sometimes it feels like these aircraft are going to land on our roof. I don't need a telephoto lens to read their markings. The other day a BIG multi-rotor helicopter passed…
Is said map available on line somewhere? I live in the El Granada Highlands, and the noise from those airplanes is frequent and annoying.
Thanks for posting this. Your contact at Verizon obviously knew more than mine. If you (or anyone else) hears any updates on this, please post them. I am really looking forward to having cell phone coverage in that area. Now if only they could get Devil's Slide covered...
I offered to let Verizon put an antenna on our house (we're up high in a great location for it) at the same price they're paying MSWD -- but so far I haven't heard anything. ;->
Anyone? I certainly have noticed zero improvement in cell phone reception using Verizon in Montara.
Hallelujah. Does anyone know details on a) when this will be operational, an/or b) how far it will extend coverage?

Stephen, You are not alone - and I don't know what is to be done other than to commiserate with one another. We seem to keep electing the same set of do-nothings over and over again, so I guess we have no one to blame but ourselves. There are neighborhoods in El Granada and I suspect up and down the Coastside that have the same issue. I grew up in Houston where there was a *lot* of wind and rain and it basically took almost a hurricane to cause an outage. Thus, I find it laughable how often the power…
I'm sure 1 mega*byte* downstream has to be a typo/error. I'm sure they mean 1Mbps (which is 1 Mega*bit* per second - which is about 128KB(ytes) per second).
1024KB per sec over wireless would indeed be nice. ;->
My gut feeling is that a bypass would certainly help the westbound afternoon commute heading north, as long as another light was not added. The Main Street light really makes life miserable on 92 during rush hour - even when Devil's Slide is open. I wish the roadwork beginning to start there included an underpass for Main Street.
What can CCF recommend to Caltrans and HMB to mitigate the westbound 92 afternoon commute *now*? It is stacked up even at 8pm.
Mr. McCall, I agree that we *should* be pulling together during this time -- I believe it is HMB officials and merchants who are displaying the selfish attitudes, not I. The SR1/SR92 exchange belongs to all of us -- and there are far more people that want to *get home to their families* at the end of the day than to get onto Main Street from 92 westbound. I was disgusted when I heard about the petition to resist the closure during peak commute hours to mitigate the traffic. And equally disgusted…
Mr. McCall, As I've indicated several times, the Main Street merchants have actively resisted a perfectly reasonable closure of Main Street during the westbound evening commute. Not only is no one in the mood to shop after sitting in half an hour or more of slow traffic, but at least one extremely reasonable alternative has been offered here. I haven't heard anything more about that. The attitude of those merchants combined with the fact that every citizen of HMB is responsible to some degree for…
Mr. MacQueen, It is not the metering lights that I am waiting for -- because Caltrans officials made it clear to me that those would be enabled when and if they and they alone judged the need was clear. What I am waiting for is a shift in attitude on the part of the HMB government and some of the Main Street merchants (regarding the Main Street closures during the afternoon). I still see an underlying attitude on the part of many in HMB that the SR1/SR92 exchange somehow belongs exclusively to HMB…
Amen to everything you said.
Mr. Nelson, It was nice meeting you last night. I haven't seen the recording of the meeting, but I thought I remembered Caltrans giving Councilman Grady some positive feedback on his query. I definitely feel that there was some overly fancy political footwork going on. I would much rather that Caltrans be blunt and state their authority as it is - but at the same time I can appreciate their position in wanting to preserve the spirit of cooperation until it just simply no longer works. I didn't realize…
That traffic data was based on light Memorial Day holiday traffic - which Caltrans also stated. But you are right, now that HMB has succeeded in wasting three weeks of precious time with bureaucratic nonsense - during at least two weeks of the school rush hour of which those lights would have done a world of good -- the point has become moot. I find it ironic that you cite the correspondence between school traffic and the need for these lights when Councilman Gorn asserted essentially the reverse…
Please don't take your teacher's perspective from this forum. I for one very much appreciated (and enjoyed) your "rant."
