The Saturday, January 13, 2018 workday is canceled

The Saturday, January 13, 2018 workday is canceled because Hwy-33 is closed at both ends due to rock & mudslides, including one that undermined the road below Rose Valley (between Ojai & Rose Valley). We do not know when the road will reopen ... or whether re-opening is even possible as one lane with alternate traffic.
