The creek outside my house (San Roque Creek) by State and Ontare rd went from a normal clear and somewhat dirty to a deep red brown mud in a few hours today at 4-5 pm. Jan 31, 2019.

I hope it’s not indicative of anything coming.

There are 5 Group 1 and 6 non Group 1 maintainable debris basins along the South Coast with the closest to this area being the one on Mission Creek. Flood Control has the complete list.

Yes this is something to be aware of if near creeks, silt filled creeks are signs that mud is flowing with water down the creeks from upstream like others have said.

Do you live in the new McMansions on San Remo? You'll get used to how creeks behave. Or are you further up Ontare, by the bridge?

Yesterday I noticed this same brown hue in the water of Atascadero Creek. The water there is usually calm/somewhat stagnant, but yesterday it was running to the ocean. The Cattails that had been chopped back were flattened. Great white egrets and Mallards were enjoying this "muddy" water. I saw a Belted kingfisher, too, which I have never before seen there. Pretty cool.

Yes, you're right it's a sign. A blood bath is coming (of course The Mendacious One would have you believe it's because of another series of invasions coming and only giving him his wall will stop them).

Good grief! It is only a sign that we had rain and that more of the dirt from the mountains will likely come down during the next storm.
