Road & Rain update, Sat. 1/24

12:30 pm – the web cam is down at the Big Sur River. That could mean electrical or phone problems, or something else entirely. I haven’t a clue, or a report.

9:00 am – Per the CT website:  IS REOPENED 12 MI NORTH OF THE SAN LUIS OBISPO/MONTEREY CO LINE  

AT 0820 HRS ON 1/24/08 

I received 2.25″ overnight, bringing the storm total to 4 and 1/2 inches. Toby, on Partington is also reporting the same 4 1/2 inches for the storm, starting Wednesday.

Received an email from Keith from Lucia. He arrived home at around 11:30 pm from Rio Rd. and reports CHP closure at Fuller’s Beach to the north. Little rock in the SB lane, but treacherous fog.

The NOAA discussion has the rain tapering off, with only minimal moisture moving into our area. The airmass dropping down from BC will drop the snow levels to 3000 ft. but with minimal moisture, snow expected to be light.

This on the Cal-Trans website this morning:
