When the alarm went off this morning, I tuned the radio to KCBS. They said that Highway One North was closed at Reina del Mar because of mudslides. I told my wife, who wasn't fully awake. She jumped out of bed and got dressed rapidly. She was supposed to open the before school care room. The trip that usually takes 7-8 minutes took her one hour. They were letting thirty cars through each way on the southbound lanes. She said it was not a nice sensation driving the wrong way. I worked from home.
Caltrans was still trying to clear the mud and keep it from flowing back onto the road during the evening commute.
We had very heavy rain over the weekend.
