Took a drive down Deerhorn Valley Rd and Honey Springs about 8:30 am this morning.  All was in surprisingly good shape.  Water is crossing the road at the Deerhorn Dip, but both dips on Honey Springs are clear.  I drove down the grade to Hwy 94.  There were rocks, sand, and mud on the surface at the curves --- be careful and slow down to avoid skidding.  At Hwy 94 I looked at the where the Jamul and Dulzura Creeks merge, and although there was a good amount of water flowing, it had not gone over the banks.   Otay Lakes Rd. was open to judge by the numbers of cars turning, and no returns.

Here are some photos of our  usual trouble spots this morning about 8:30 AM.  More rain is coming throughout the day, but it looks like we can start drying out tomorrow.
