Rain & Road Reports, 1/5/17

2:30 pm – I am adding the following link to the Carmel River Watershed to my list of links to the right, but you might want to bookmark it. You will really want to watch this this weekend. Remember the Bailey Bridge???

Carmel River Watershed

1:15 Highway completely open.

11:45 am – Okay, got the notice from Cal Trans. Just as they were getting ready to open, Paul’s Slide (MM 21.6) dumped. Mud Creek (MM 8.8) is now open to LOCALS ONLY, who can get from Ragged Point to MM 20, but not past Pauls Slide. Another assessment at 2 pm,

9 am – Cal Trans sent out a notice that Highway One remains closed this morning. They will reassess the situation at 11 am. I will notify all here at that time, so check back around 11;30.

On another note, my AirPort Extreme quit, so I am trying to configure up an old lap top so that I can connect with my satellite, without too much luck. I can still post here and do emails with my cell service, it is just slow and sometimes intermittent.

As to FB, we are still battling, but I don’t think they will let me use BigSur Kate. I may have to use Kate “bigsurkate” Novoa. Still working with them, sort of. Despite all the comments emails, etc. They are being a horse’s a$$

  2. Please be VERY careful about creating a new FB account or page. FB has strict rules about creating a new account to access FB when they have suspended you. If they catch you, you could be blocked permantly.

  6. Hi BSK, any chance your professors in engineering or locals could predict the aftermath of these superstorms would have on the Carmel River if the San Clemente Dam removal project didn’t get finished or started?

  7. Good lord, Andrew. Probably, but I don’t have the time right now to find out. The bigger issue is the storm of the century and the burn area and keeping people and homes safe.

  8. Just reflecting on how fortunate this area is to have that huge project completed on the footsteps of a once in a generation storm ready to test the county infrastucture. The OES will be plenty busy this weekend +.

  10. Kate, should those of us in the burn scar evacuate? or hunker down? I am flip-flopping back and forth. Not sure what to do?

  12. Della, it would be hard for me to make that determination. I would seek out the advise of neighbors who better know your situation. If you are close to a stream, or down hill from a burn scar, I would be off to town for a nice comfortable motel room from which to watch it on the local news, myself. Michael Troutman is on call for a helicopter to watch from above, but by then, it would be too late. What does your gut and your comfort level tell you? Listen to that. Safety is number one.
