Around 6:30 on Friday January 14th 2011 there was a disturbance within the Force. A lot of rain caused a mudslide over our main access road to our village. A lot of the community was at a basket ball game that was usually a half hour drive away. They had to take some back country logging roads to get home on a 2 hour detour.
On Saturday morning I borrowed a tripod from a friend and drove to where the slide happened. I took 1600 pictures over 2.5 hours and then my battery died. My first attempt at the timelapse was 57 seconds at 28 frames per second. Second attempt was 53 seconds at 30 frames per second. I then went and cut every 6th picture out to cut the time down to 45 seconds at 30 frames a second.
The local newspaper says its estimated to be around 4000 cubic yards of debris. That is 56,000 2 cubic foot wheel barrows, Or 36,000 3 cubic foot wheel barrows.
Saturday evening one lane was open for traffic.
