The UPRR has been clobbered but good.  All of the photos are in SoCal, except the Caliente shots are in Nevada.  Metrolink has also lost several hundred feet of track in San Clemente where they run right on the beach.

Opid's Camp got it's seconf highest day of rainfall.  Considering it holds the continental US record for rain in a single day that must have been something.

Opid's is (was) up between Switzer's Camp and Red Box in the San Gabriel Mountains behind Pasadena, and is situated where two major canyons meet, the geography being such that  in rare circumstances the heavy mositure clouds get pushed up both canyons and meet there, the clouds go up and the rain all comes down.
