8:00 pm – wait a minute … What is that I hear? I thought the rain wasn’t going to come back in until after midnight! These storms must be giving the forecasters fits.
2:00 pm – looks like it will be a quiet afternoon. Rain has stopped, one unknown traffic hazard NB 1 at Carmel Valley Rd. but I’m still here keeping an eye on things, my Internet is working, there is a fire in the fireplace, the genie is running, and I have a meatloaf in the oven. All-in-all, a good afternoon!
Noon – CHP Not reporting any problems on Highway One, as of 15 mins ago. If you observe any, please post in the comments section below, as Michael Handy did. A time and location, as Michael provided is crucial. We are FINALLY getting that promised break, so this is a good time to go out and fill and start my genie, so I will continue to have power tonight through tomorrow, no matter what happens!
10:00am – CHP rports a rock/mudslide in Big Sur on Highway One, no mile marker or better location given, and the RP was able to get around by driving on shoulder. No indication of how much of the lane, or which lane, given. Woefully inadequate information IMHO just reported a few minutes ago.
9:15 am – it has rained steadily since I woke at 7 am. What is this? I thought we were supposed to get a break today? Gunna be time to start the ol’ fire going again soon.
8:00 am – no closures on Highway One reported on the CHP website so far this morning. We get a bit of a break from the heavy rain today, although it is currently raining up here on my mountain top. flash Flood watch continues, per NOAA. .MTR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES…
