Ducks in a Row
Fall arrived. Winter approaches. Are you prepared? Here’s a list of a few things to worry about finishing soon.
- Chimney Swept
- Trim trees that might be a danger in winter storms
- Emergency Kit for winter storms- candles, matches, battery backups for computer and phones, extra water, extra food
- Halloween Candy…Oh, yah! I might as well buy several bags as they’ll be gone by Halloween anyway…

According to the CHP, a tree is blocking State Route 1 near Hwy 101 at Leggett. I’ll update as I get more info.

Update 3:40: According to Marty Messenger of County Roads the road is clear. Fortunately, the huge boulder broke apart as soon as they started to push with the loader which made it easy to clear away. Messenger said that the slide is “still weeping though and once it starts moving it has a mind of its own.” But for now at least the road is open. Here’s another photo showing the water backing up around the rock. (Photos by Messenger.)

UPDATE at 8:10 a.m.: Okay, I’m about to surrender. Nate Downey is reporting on twitter that the accident is northbound.
UPDATE: Reports from the scene say the accident is just south of College of the Redwoods King Salmon (I apologize. I don’t know whether the CHP site has the Latitude longitude lines incorrect or if I didn’t use them correctly.)
A big rig is overturned just north of College of the Redwoods. The semi hit a vehicle on the roadside just before 5:30 this morning. The southbound slow lane is closed near the Tompkins Hill Offramp.
