  • Morning Coffee: Mudslides = house buried in mud

    This photo from the LA Times actually pales in comparison to the TV footage of the mudslides in La Cañada Flintridge, which was hit hard by the wildfires last year. The TV footage showed mud inside a house that nearly reached the knob on the front door, and a reporter standing on eight feet of mud, pretty much level with the bottom edge of a house’s roof.
