  1. The closure was due to 10 dumpster loads of mountainside on the highway at “Paul’s slide” near the “Rain Rocks Rock Shed”. Drove through at about 7:50am and they were just about done cleaning it up and the foreman said they’d have it done in a few minutes. Lucia Lodge is getting travelers from both directions saying the highway is open.

  5. I just saw that, Andrew. On top of the 3″ they got before. I’m at almost .75″ but, again, I’ve got the rain gauge on the wrong side of the roof.
