Just to let you know, the LA County Department of Public Works has three (3) planned road closures in the Angeles Forest. These are “hard” closures, which means no one gets in except emergency response personnel.
Following the Kagel Canyon Meeting last week, I wanted to find a video on debris flows in order to illustrate what we’re up against this coming Winter. I believe this is the same footage that Sue Perry from the USGS used in her PowerPoint presentation. FWIW, this is what sold me on how dangerous this Winter is going to be!
Last night I finally made it to the Friday night meeting for Vogel Flats residents, and over the next several days you will be hearing more from me about it. But before I can take my night’s ease and try to get a nap in before tackling tomorrow’s tasks, I wanted to put the word out that everyone who survived the Station Fire, and I mean everyone, is thinking and worrying about what this Winter’s rains will bring down.
It’s hard to believe that the Station Fire roared through Big Tujunga Canyon a month ago. In some ways it seems like five minutes ago. In other ways it seems like a lifetime.
In the month since the fire I have gotten to know my neighbors better than I had in thirty years of coming to the canyon, or in ten years of being a resident, myself. This month has taught me about the warmth of strangers, and frustration with bureaucracies to a greater degree than I realized was possible. So many lessons, so many insights.
