    Please inform me of the Cajun pass I commute down the hill to the City of Norwalk on a daily basis. I am concerned of the road conditions. Thank you for your assistance. Irma

      Hi Irma, I hope you watched the evening news for Cajon Pass updates. They did a good job of covering developments for drivers on what to expect this morning. I do put up as many notices as I can from Caltrans 8 and from the weather service to alert our high desert commuters. But, I was not getting anything new after I posted yesterday. I watched the evening news to see what was happening for commuters on the pass. It seems that later in the evening and morning, patrols were escorting cars to control speed and ensure safety. Snowplows were out scraping snow, too. Victor Valley News Group Gave an update this morning and had great aerial photo of the freeway in snow.
