Bluhduh Cleveland Closure 411...

This is what I suggest...

According to the Trabuco District office, the gates will remain closed until after the 5th, or 6th.

The roads are impassable after the last storm due to windfall and mud. Contractors have been hired to clear the debris.

An assessment will be made after the 6th.

Stay Tuned.

I also hear Anza-Borrego is nice this time of year...
