Wet weather finally

This round of stormy weather gave our Santa Clara home 2.87 inches of badly needed rain, and a total of 7.08 inches since September. And snow on Mt. Hamilton.

Guadalupe River is raging and the often flooded underpass at Hwy 101 is flooded once again.

San Tomas Aquino Creek’s “Niagara Falls” is flowing nicely.

Even more good news, construction is underway at the De La Cruz Blvd./Trimble Rd. and Hwy 101 overpass. The road will be widened with a bike lane.

It comes too late for me, as I stopped daily commuting here in 2010.

Today I’d probably take the paved Guadalupe River path, although not on days like today when it’s flooded.

I had a few close calls here as huge trucks squeezed by me on the overpass, and I dodged cars taking the Hwy 101 south on-ramp.

I enjoyed the ride, except for this short stretch.

Airport parking structure never fails to impress.

    Ray, any idea how the road up mt hamillton is now……are there still delays? or just trash?

    Ted: I went up it earlier this year after it had been fully paved. The fire scorched lots of trees from Smith Creek on up. It’s barren, not to my liking. The tree cover won’t be back for many decades.
