From Curry Coastal Pilot Highway 101 is closed at the Hooskenaden Slide 12 miles north of Brookings after torrential rain caused the grade to sink.
Traffic may be rerouted along Carpenterville Road, however, if drivers must be aware there are areas of gravel road and places where the road is merely a single lane.
Drivers are urged to use caution and allow for additional travel time if you plan to use the alternate route.
This is about 10 miles north of us! And we're always headed North!! Including for two upcoming retreats!!
But moving on ... part of my Christmas present this year was tickets to the "Come From Away" Musical when it came to Portland. That was this weekend. OH WOW! It is Fan-tabulous!! We laughed, we cried, we gave a long standing ovation!! I highly recommend it to everyone. See it if you can.
With the slide, we had to go over to Grant's Pass and then up over the high passes on I5. I don't like doing that in the winter. But it was only a little nerve-wracking this time. And a beautiful drive on our way home.
Only two more weeks in my embroidery class - it's gone fast and the students are even doing their homework between classes!! Yay! It's been fun and I'm sure I'll offer it again.
