The trees will come down and the dam will be built. That was a Ventura County judge's decision Friday in a bitter feud between Thousand Oaks homeowners and the county over a controversial dam that will be built in their upscale neighborhood. Superior Court Judge Thomas J. Hutchins' decision effectively clears the way for the county's Flood Control District to cut down 40 aging trees and start construction of the dam in the Lang Ranch subdivision.

This week's pair of thunderstorms have pushed rainfall totals to higher than normal, and more rain is expected by the end of the week, meteorologists said. The rain brought a spate of accidents, including one in which a Camarillo man died.

With its blue skies and pleasantly warm temperatures, Monday hardly seemed like the kind of day to be thinking about rain. But for staff members of the Ventura County Flood Control District, Sept. 30 has special significance because it marks the day that one water year ends and another is about to begin. "We celebrate it just like other people do New Year's," said Dolores Taylor, the county's chief hydrologist.

An arctic blast hit Ventura County on Monday, leaving mountain residents and campers under as much as a foot of snow, closing a 25-mile stretch of California 33 and drenching the coast and valley with more than an inch of rain. Forest Ranger Charlie Robinson watched the rain turn to snow as he headed to work from his home in Ventura to the Upper Ojai station of Los Padres National Forest. "It was so cold this morning that the rain seemed to be turning to slush in Oak View," Robinson said.

Weather forecasters on Tuesday were calling for anywhere from two to 14 inches of rain in parts of Ventura County by Saturday as two powerful subtropical storms are poised to sweep through in quick succession. The possibility of heavy rainfall prompted county emergency and flood control officials to warn residents to sandbag flood-prone areas and to stay away from waterways over the next several days.
