Crescent City update

Wow.  Something on the AP wire about Crescent City!

I wonder why now?  Were they thinking about the soon to begin crab season?   And if so, why didn't they mention it?

"The commercial Dungeness crab season north of Sonoma County will be delayed at least two weeks to allow crabs more time to grow to ensure they are of suitable quality.
The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) delayed the opening of the commercial Dungeness crab season after tests showed crabs in the area lacked the required body mass. The decision means the scheduled Dec. 1 opening will be pushed back at least two weeks and possibly longer if the crabs need more time to mature.
The central California commercial Dungeness crab season is set to open on schedule Nov. 15.
The North Coast crab fishery is subject to tests to ensure the crabs are not harvested prematurely." Calif. Dept. of Fish & Game website. This was headline news in the Eureka newspaper last week.
