After the storm by Jen Smith on Clear Ridge:

11 am – update: Dang, it is raining again. Not heavy, but it could impact the projected opening, if it continues.

The highway remains closed due to two serious slides on the South Coast – one at Paul’s Slide, south of Lucia, and another further south at Mud Creek (south of Gorda.) Predictions currently are that they will be cleared by 2 this afternoon.

I recorded over 6 inches of rain since Tuesday night. I apologize for the lateness of this post, but I couldn’t get internet this morning via satellite or cell. The wind was still quite high.
