If life gives you mud…

La Cañada Flintridge residents living on streets threatened by mudslides are refusing to let sandbags and cement barriers dampen their holiday cheer. K-rails up and down Ocean View Boulevard, and on Big Briar Way, have been decorated with Christmas lights, tinsel, wrapping paper and flowers.

On Friday, 20-year-old Brian Laguna was stringing colored lights along waist-high K-rails in front of his house, located at the corner of Ocean View Boulevard and Manistee Drive. The decorating idea started with a neighbor a few blocks down the street, he said, and slowly began to spread throughout the Paradise Valley neighborhood.

“The K-rails are pretty ugly,” Laguna said. “We are trying to make them a little more attractive. We actually hadn’t put lights up [on our house]  for two years, we just went out and bought these.”
