  1. Ha, that’s usually where we park when we walk in the park!

  2. And it is probably a good idea that you just turned around and went home as I am reading 4 hours to fix all the way to “who knows?”


  3. Glad nobody was hurt.

  4. Jim, phone out, highway closed…? Tree down in Big Sur??

  5. Yes, Heidi. One person claims 4 hours to fix, but Cal Trans is saying indefinitely. Apparently, multiple trees.


  6. The last I heard was electricity might be back on around 8:30 p.m. tonight.

  7. Haven’t heard anything re power one way or another.
