Rain Report, 12/22/08

10:00 am update – quite chilly, but there is sun. Cal-Trans still reporting no problems, and CHP still reporting a lane closure at MM 50. I don’t know what to tell you.

8:00 am update  – 2.25 inches last night, bringing the season total to 8.75 inches. WOW! That was some rainfall. And this storm was the light one? Big Sur River flow peaked at 85 cubic feet per second. Quite a spike from the 15 cubic feet per second which is the usual.

Per the CHP website, there is a slide (it doesn’t actually SAY slide, but what else could it be?) at MM 50, blocking one lane, just reported at 8 am. It is not on the Cal-Trans website, yet. MM 50 is between River Inn and Andrew Molera SP. And remember, my friends, the slides do not stop just because the rain has!

BTW, while showers have not been taken out of the forecast for Christmas Day, snow has. Rather have snow than rain. Oh, well.
