Shortly after I posted this, Maya found her way home. Her humans were so relieved. It was only a few days earlier that they lost Maya’s companion, the 13-year-old dog. Maybe she went looking for her friend … Anyway, enjoy the rain. Storm report later.
Lost Dog (Big Sur near Gorda Mt.)
Our sweet Australian Shepherd/Rottweiler mix female dog went missing today. She is almost 3 years old and her name is Maya. She did not have her collar on but does have a microchip! She was last seen March 6th, Sunday morning near her house on Gorda Mt. (near the Cruickshank Trail), Big Sur. There were a lot of hikers today. We are very worried and really want her back so please help us get her home. Call Tafay or Josh : H:805-927-5674, C: 831-238-0112, C: 831-915-6570, Email: email@example.com.
7:00 – So, just at 6:30 am, my usual time to let the dogs out, it starts majorly hailing. Rain total so far is 4.55″ but the Hermitage reports just over 6″ so far. I think my gauge is in a rain shadow. Santa Cruz County Roads are a mess – too many flooded, closed, trees, power lines, etc. down to recount. The SL River crested and evacuation centers were set up.
Here is a photo of the car that slipped off the edge on Hermitage RD.

Highway One, Big Sur: This is from the CHP website. It is near Post Ranch entrance:
 1039 27-S3 WITH INFO
5:45 AM 1  2 SLIDES ABOUT 1/2 MILE APART / 1 IN NB LANE / OTHER IN SB LANE
I can’t imagine the rest of Highway One is in the best of shape either. Continued monitoring and reports as the day continues. Remember, be safe, and don’t put anyone else’s life in danger via the need to rescue you. Bigsurkate
