  By now we all know what the rain event last week did - one
person came down Angeles Crest Hwy during the event (rumor has
it the person was from Mt. Wilson) and got stuck in the mud.
The person walked to the Crest Station and broke in and called
911 which resulted in our Dispatch getting called and my
Battalion Chief being awoken at home early in the morning.
  Please, please, please.......what this storm showed is that
it may not be raining in 90% of the mountains but downpouring
in the other 10%.  So if we continue to get people stuck or
driving on the highway in unsafe conditions, we are going to
have to pull people off the mountains and suspend permits
