They’re mucking with the flows again. The release has dropped to 446 CFS, for no dicernable reason. I’m attempting to get to the bottom of it, but all I have to show is a bunch of folks who really are in the know shrugging the shoulders at me. The good news is this smaller drop should not adversely affect the river, as there isn’t a huge difference in level between 500 and 446. Our good friend Mr. Fog made a reappearance last night though – as it was warm and VERY humid in the late evening. This shut things down a little bit prematurely, but not before some good action was had by folks out in Home Pool. Similar weather today – mostly cloudy with some T-storms likely popping up later in the day. Barring any dramatic pressure changes, it looks like it’s going to be pretty good out there.
