@libbyrinth No. It's quite easy for _anyone_ to go in and indicate road closures, construction, and short term events. That's a major value of the system!
@joelrubin It also doesn't help that they're randomly and capriciously closing routes without notification and/or updating those apps with the realtime closures.

I recall reading somewhere that Fanny Farmer and her eponymous and illustrious (read:nefarious if you're a baker) cookbook heavily influenced American (home) bakers to move from measuring flour by weight to measuring by volume instead. It's done such a disservice to the bread world here in the states. I suspect this is where the need to sift has stemmed as the amount of sifted flour in one cup can be drastically different from a packed cup.
I definitely ignore any cookbooks (with bread and pastry) that measure flour by volume over weight. It's just sacrilege.
I wish I could make them, but my friend @eatpodcast is doing two bread workshops in Washington DC in December. If you're a foodie, you should definitely take a peek!
I drove through here yesterday twice on my way to math class at UCLA and it wasn't nearly as haunting:
I've spent a few hours, usually while watching television, slowly but surely updating my OPML list in the past weeks/months. It's been a bit tedious, but is slowly but surely coming into better shape over time. I don't recommend trying to do it all at once...
The nice part is now that it's nearly done (aside from occasional additions/deletions in the future) it will be much more portable.
@CaltransDist7 How about we make a worst case scenario plan now before this evening's rush hour to help conserve some of our precious resources? Particularly before we loose daylight which is going to compound things?
@CaltransDist7 That's odd because I didn't see anyone battling fires in NW Glendale this morning *anywhere near* the Pennsylvania or Lowell exits. I have a feeling it was more like poor resource management and lack of communication. Can we do better please? :)
@Andy_Truc I saw it after I made some calls and after I finished writing the post below. The tougher question is why were they all closed through rush hour? Was there some major change in the fires in the last two hours?
