11:30 AM UPDATE:

11:18 AM —MISC SIZED ROCKS IN RDWY — SKYLINE TRUCK TRAIL & LYONS VALLEY RD. CHP coordinates show it near SKYLINE SPUR off Lyons Valley. May be error? Stay alert. Expect anything. 2 inches of rainfall already today. Yesterday 0.85"

CHP reported a "TRAFFIC HAZARD" on Honey Springs Road between 94 and Deerhorn Valley Rd.  No details.  Incident is now removed, but head's up.  This is rockslide weather.

EARLIER: This second storm is stronger, will move more slowly, and will drop more rain onto saturated ground. DON'T expect our danger spots to be marked with signs.  The Sheriffs have their hands full.  Use common sense.  If you don't KNOW the road conditions under the water, don't cross.  Road could be undermined, collapsed— water may hide  rocks and tree limbs.  A small car will float in as little as 12 inches of water.  In fast-moving water it takes a lot less to push your car around.
