Azusa, California (CNN) - Landslides in Glendora and Azusa, California, left plenty of mud and debris in neighborhoods such as this one.
Residents of about a-thousand homes were evacuated over the weekend.
Once the rain tapered off, officials lifted those evacuation orders.
Residents returned to this -- mud caked over roads, yards, and driveways.

Now, they have to figure out how to get it all removed.
