Big Sur Chamber of Commerce and the CPOA (Coast Property Owner’s Association) both put out emails reporting on today’s meeting. The bottom line is that currently the Rocky Creek closure is hoped to be opened the first week in May. Of course, this is highly weather dependent, and we have two weather events coming our way this week and next, so look for the possibility of further delays. Everyone is working hard to open the road back up as expeditiously and safely as possible.
Received from Dave Potter’s Office this afternoon:
“Due to the Highway 1 road closure, the April 15th BSMAAC meeting has been cancelled. The next meeting is scheduled to take place on July 15, 2011.”
Also, this weather warning was attached: “ON THURSDAY NUMEROUS SHOWERS WITH SMALL HAIL AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE
FORECAST THROUGH THE DAY. THE PRECIPITATION WILL BE CONVECTIVE MEANING PERIODS OF SUNSHINE COULD QUICKLY TURN TO HEAVIER DOWNPOURS WHICH CAN OFTEN LEAD TO TRAFFIC PROBLEMS ON BAY AREA ROADWAYS. DAYTIME HIGHS WILL BE MUCH COOLER WITH HIGH ONLY IN THE 50S. THIS WILL BRING SNOW LEVELS DOWN TO AROUND 3000 FEET AND POSSIBLY AS LOW AS 2500 FEET IN THE HEAVIER SHOWERS. ANYONE WITH PLANS TO THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE SAN FRANCISCO AND MONTEREY BAY REGION SHOULD EXPECT WINTER LIKE WEATHER CONDITIONS ON THURSDAY.”
This Spring is turning out to be bipolar, isn’t she?
