The following report was sent via e-mail by Duncan Baird. Thanks Duncan, for everything! ~B~
40 cubic yards of “material” was delivered by the Public Works Dept. to the overflow parking area of the Vogel Flats Picnic Area. The “material” came from the PW yard in La Crescenta.
3000 empty white plastic sand bags were also delivered by the County FD at the same location. (Art Vander Vis sent photos to all of you of the dirt and empty dirtbags).
I met this morning with Chris Stone in the Canyon. (Stone is Bill Saunder’s boss). He looked over our situation and was non-committal regarding “K” rail placement along your side (the river side) of Stonyvale. He did commit to email back to you (Adi) and I regarding the placement of sand bags and/or “K” rails. I explained to him our timeline as it relates to the work that the Baptists are going to begin next week. Mike Studebaker told me that his goal was to finish their work by Thanksgiving.
I briefly got involved in cat trap placement by my cement mixer.
Trent Sanders showed up in the canyon. (He is the former owner and builder of Bert and Catherine’s home). He had not been in the Canyon since he left 15 years ago. He lives in La Canada now.
I got some bad news from Verizon. They are NOT putting in fiber optic. The info about fiber optic that I had been given a couple of weeks ago was grossly erroneous. So, we’re back to HughsNet or dial-up, Oh, poop! And my dish MELTED!
It got very windy and therefore way too dusty to do much work.
