The good news is NoCal may see some decent rain towards next weekend as our first little fall storm hits, though not expecting any precip down there.

Our larger gravel is more in the 1 1/2" range, same as our neighbors, and it's a pain to deal with. And you definitely do not want to have a load of fire wood dumped upon it!!!

Thank you all for the input - definitely gave me some piece of mind!

I have no trouble raking the pine needles off our 3/4" gravel using a metal leaf rake

ND - If you are starting fresh, get small, pea gravel. That's what we mostly have, my husband can rake up the pine needles, where as in the area with the larger gravel, he has to use a blower.

Campingmom -- I am considering that, just wondering if anyone has any brilliant ideas. My wife and I are likely going to put some gravel in the backyard, and we have a lot of pine needles going on back there, just want to make sure I can at least get the majority of them up before we take the plunge and order 6 tons of gravel haha I think a blower so far is a pretty strong contender.

Thanks RRH. I was checking a few cams here earlier to see what I could see. Good catch on Heavenly.

Beautiful shot from Heavenly Valley Ski area looking toward the ENF-King fire. Smoke is topping the ridge and falling down to Lake Tahoe.
