Today's Meteorological Challenge: Flooding. Wind. With Some Rain.

When I drove out of Mi Wuk, heading for Tuolumne yesterday morning, I was astounded by the amounts of debris, mud and runoff over Lama Hisum > Lama Tamalin Roads and then Tuolumne Road heading toward the casino (I had a brunch meeting.)  There was also lots of fast flowing water crossing any road I traveled.  We can “look forward” to more of that condition for the next few days.

These photos below are of the creek you cross when entering the Black Oak Casino parking area.

On tap for the next few days:  a wind advisory and flood warning.

When you’re away from your mountain retreat, be sure to click on the weather map in the sidebar for current conditions.  I find this site to be the most accurate for our immediate area.
