I admit – I took the day off yesterday – from everything and everyone. I went to Paso on Friday, a 6 hour round trip to do my shopping, and it wore me out.
I do have some depressing news about Alder Creek. Cal-Trans sent out a notice on Friday that the road would be closed there for 4-6 weeks. Bah, phewy. Cambria is my closest town. I have pre-paid for some work to be done out of there – so I guess I’ll be waiting on that. Word on the street is that three “spider” excavators are being brought in to work the top of the slide as Cal-Trans did on the big slide in 1983.
As difficult as this is on some of us, I cannot but imagine the toll it is taking on Pacific Valley School. Many of the teachers and staff live south of the slide. This past week, they have been on Easter break, so not too difficult, but next week? It will be a challenge to house all those who must be housed here during the closure.
Weather has also been depressing – wet and cold. Looks like one more round, and then a dry week ahead. NOAA discussion –
“ANOTHER LOW MOVING INTO THE PAC NW LATER TONIGHT AND MONDAY WILL INITIALLY DRAG A WARM FRONT THROUGH NORCAL FOLLOWED BY A COLD FRONT. AS A RESULT…ANOTHER ROUND OF LIGHT RAIN WILL BE POSSIBLE LATE TONIGHT AND MONDAY. MODEL GUIDANCE FOCUSES MOST OF THE RAINFALL OVER THE NORTH BAY…BUT SOME RAIN WILL BE POSSIBLE AS FAR SOUTH AS MONTEREY. RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL ONCE AGAIN BE ON THE LIGHT SIDE. THE REST OF THE WORK WEEK APPEARS TO BE DRY AS WEAK RIDGING BUILDS OVER THE REGION.”
My mood needs sun.
