The first rainstorm of the season caused plenty of anxiety and dozens of traffic accidents, but no mudslides. Los Angeles County officials have been warning for weeks of a heightened risk of flooding and erosion in the foothills in the wake of the Station fire. The fire burned 160,000 acres in the Angeles National Forest and blackened the hills above La Cañada, creating perfect conditions for dangerous debris flow. Engineers from the county’s Department of Public Works have spent the last six weeks working to identify at-risk homes and to develop individual engineering plans for each property.

A cold front originating in the Gulf of Alaska delivered periodic rain showers to La Cañada Flintridge on Tuesday and left the San Gabriel Mountains dusted with snow. The forecast for the storm led to the closure of Angeles Forest Highway from Aliso Canyon to Angeles Crest Highway, and of a portion of Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road. Some La Cañada areas interfacing with the Station fire debris flow area prepared for the storm with sandbags. But no significant rainfall totals were recorded, with Descanso Gardens reporting 0.07 inches as of Tuesday afternoon.

When was the last time you laughed during a difficult moment in your life? You’ve probably often heard the old adage, “Laugher is the best medicine.” Well, it truly is. There is nothing like a good belly laugh, a silent giggle or the reaction to a bad joke to lessen the stress of any situation. Difficult moments are the most difficult to find a laugh in, but if you can manage it, it feels like a ton of bricks have magically disappeared from your shoulders.

With storms poised to arrive last night and continue into the weekend, the city of La Cañada Flintridge reports that all local debris basins are in good condition, but that officials will be keeping an eye out for potential flooding or debris flows. “The weather indications do give advisories for the 'recent' burn areas as listed, but does not specifically name the Station fire area,” said City Manager Mark Alexander in an email interview. “We are cautiously hopeful that the prior run-off combined with hillside growth in the Station fire burn areas over the past four and a half years is sufficient to avoid further mudslide and debris run-off, albeit we can expect some residual or moderate run-off.

Ten Years Ago Then-JPL Director Edward Stone was at NASA headquarters to take part in a press conference announcing the outcome on an inquiry into the September 1999 loss of the $125 million Mars Climate Orbiter. Stone said better management practices were being put into place at JPL to insure nothing more went wrong with the overall project, as the $165 million Mars Polar Lander was nearing its scheduled Dec. 3, 1999 landing date on the Red Planet. But the changes were not enough to save the lander, as it too was lost less than a month after Stone made his statement to the press.
