Dam!

Thanks to correspondent Rick for forwarding these most recent photos of the Big Bear Dam construction.

Yesterday I fell off the planet after my late morning stroll but thought I’d at least give you some of the news I picked up from one of the county guys.

We were lucky not to have flooded during the torrential rain.

Although we had help with road clearing, the independent contractors managed to fill up many of the drains and drainage channels with snow and ice.

Believe it or not, the county has ONE backhoe and it went from one flood zone near Angeles Oaks to another (Blue Jay/Crestline areas).

Anyway the backhoe is what they apparently need to clear some of our drainage areas.

Yesterday I eyeballed water running down Hopi down Navajo, Brookside down Mohawk, and down Brookside where it is pooling up in front of the Buddhist Meditation Temple.

Anyway, some of the water is making it through the ice down into the channels but be warned that it might be a problem. If you live near one of the drainage areas the local plow operator said they are aware of the issues but you might call or see what you can do to protect your property.

The road in front of the triangle is pooling and is compromising the road–pot holes and cracks are getting larger.
