    rock slide closes dragon

    A rock slide on US 129 has closed all lanes. No word for how long.

    Maybe more details at WBIR.com

    Slide happened 2 miles south of the dam.

    Man, Hwy 64 and now the Dragon. We have been getting a lot of rain!

    Where have all the Porsche roads gone...

    This is been a rough winter for all of us it seems! I hope everything will be open when we head down here in May.

    Must have done a great job of posting warning signs, flares, etc.! If he was going any faster he probably would have gone airborne and nailed the car on the other side of the rock fall.

    Must be at the overlook. There is no other such open area anywhere on the Dragon. Cherahola yes but not on the Dragon. He propably was either looking at the scenery or the Cop cars, guy with camera etc. But no matter what that should buff right out ...

    Looks like until that guy drove into the rock pile and blocked everything, the JEEP Grand Cherokee on the other side was thinking about just going over it.

    Good grief can you imagine if that guy was following you and you braked for the rocks? The back of my Cayman would have been like a ski jump for him...
