Highway One closed

Hi Kate, Just wanted to give you a heads up that we are going to be closing the road right now (Friday night 8pm) at the Willow Springs maintenance station and at Ragged point due to multiple slides between here and there.

I am sure Greg and crew will be working on clearing these slides at first light and will have the road open as fast as possible. There were several times earlier this evening where it was raining 3″ an hour for a while.

At 4:55 pm, the rain rate was 2.95″/ hour … At 5:15 it was 3.13″ an hour. Hopefully, just a short-lived cell.whew!

I know I haven’t seen the sun up here in a week! More this afternoon and evening, then a break (although I have to point out that every so called “break” predicted thus far, it has rained, at least up here), another storm on Monday/Tuesday and then another on Thursday.
