It has been raining for two weeks straight. The hills sides are now wet several feet down. With heavy storms coming off the pacific, Santa Cruz has been mud slide city. It started early last week when the back side of this ridge decided to slide down and obliterate the road below. It was a huge slide that will take weeks to clear. My unlucky neighbors have to park a mile and down the road from their house, which is a real hassle with groceries and such.
On Thursday my road was blocked by a slide that took out power (including the poles) for twenty-four hours. Twenty-four hours later, it happen again at the same place – with another pole down and power outage. Not a big deal, I’m happy the worst appears to be over. Its great to have the rain.
