One of the passes between southern California and central California is called the grapevine. Recent rain caused a mudslide and I didn’t have a clue. I described the pictures I saw at other passings. ” Imagine cake batter in a pan then placing your Matchbox race cars in the batter and baking it”. The cars and trucks completely envelope in dirt cookie madness. I knew a guy who told me about a flood he experienced. He had the wherewithal to jump on the hood of his truck and said he saw snakes and deers swimming right pass him. Truck dried out and worked another 9 years. Yea Ford. I feel so fortunate that people out there remedy the situation so promptly that I and others get down that mountain. May I never take anything for granted. Weather is life affirming for sure.
