Highway 33 closed at Wheeler Gorge

by Tyler Suchman on January 24, 2008

From the Forest Service…
Hwy 33 is closed right now at Wheeler Gorge Visitor Center. The 1-800-gas-road phone number and the Cal Trans Website contradicts itself. Scott Morgan just came down from the Wheeler Fire Station and CHP is sitting in a car at the closure.
Info from the website:
SR 33 [IN THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AREA] IS CLOSED FROM 7.5 MI NORTH OF OJAI (VENTURA CO) TO 9 MI SOUTH OF THE VENTURA/SANTA BARBARA CO LINE – DUE TO SNOW – MOTORISTS ARE ADVISED TO USE AN ALTERNATE ROUTE CHAINS OR SNOW TIRES ARE REQUIRED FROM WHEELER CAMPGROUNDS TO THE LOCKWOOD / OZENA RANGER STATION (VENTURA CO)

Did anyone else see the snow-covered mountains, cloud free, under a nearly full moon around midnight last night? It was spectacular.

This is no doubt a result of global warming !

Anybody been up to Shelf Road today? That must be a spectacular view. Not much to report from Ventura today – wish I was at home in Ojai (should have taken a “sick” day I guess and stayed under the covers).

It’s raining pretty good right now – Dennis probably has Shelf to his self.

Perhaps, Brian, but to what do you attribute your cerebral meltdown and inability to be civil?

Every climate model based on global warming warns that the effects of the changing climate will be varied and unpredictable.
Warming in some areas will cause weather patterns to shift and become more extreme. That means hotter highs and colder lows.
Of course, one needs to have more than one brain circuit to process that. This is why Rush Limbaugh clones cannot grasp it: it doesn’t fit into their bumper-sticker view of a complicated world.
