Highway 101 reopened just before 4:30 p.m., according to Caltrans District 1 spokesperson Myles Cochrane.  Winter weather had shut down several sections between Cummings south of Leggett and north of Ukiah late yesterday afternoon.

Downed trees, power lines, and snow caused the initial problem but a number of vehicles stuck in the snow also needed to be cleared.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
