My boss lives in Topanga Canyon. It's a beautiful area in Malibu that's so secluded that it's only accessible by a single road, on account of it being a canyon and all. The photo up there was taken on that road. It's as if one of the mountains took a massive shit. She hasn't been able to get back to her home since Saturday.
How the hell do you get rid of a rock that's roughly the size of a two-story house? The only other time I saw a rock that big was in the opening credits of "Superfriends", when Superman picks up a similar-sized boulder to plug an erupting volcano. This is probably the largest non-cartoon rock I've ever seen.
So the lesson I learned from all this rain is never buy a house in a canyon. Stick to buttes and plateaus.
